MOUNT VERNON — On the eve of the 2022 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, workers at Tulip Town spread gravel along walkways in display gardens, moved sawdust to bridge muddy fields and painted lines on the grassy parking area.

RoozenGaarde employees were working the ticket booth, directing traffic and flagging cars on Beaver Marsh Road for pedestrians to cross while visitors were already roaming its expansive display gardens of daffodils and tulips, some of which were in bloom.
