People took advantage of the warm spring sun this week to check out some of the millions of blooming bulbs in Chilliwack.

The Chilliwack Tulips attraction opened Sunday, April 11 where more than 6.5 million bulbs have been planted on the 20-plus acre farm.

As of Wednesday (April 14) the hyacinths, daffodils and a few types of early tulips were in full bloom, but now folks can catch a much larger variety of tulips.

Due to the current provincial travel advisory (avoiding non-essential travel outside of your region), the tulips team is encouraging only residents of the Fraser Valley to visit the fields at this time.
