OTTAWA — The Canadian Tulip Festival auctioned off many of the giant plaster tulips that pop up across Ottawa during the May bloom.
The lucky winners are not only adopting a piece of history, they are preserving a 15-year tradition from crumbling away.
There were 60 giant plaster tulips up for grabs in an online auction by the Canadian Tulip Festival; many uniquely painted by local artists, some blank.
