Be part of this year's 150 celebration and capture your tulips in bloom! 

The contest has now closed. We thank everyone who submitted photos. Stay tuned for the announcement on our winners in the categories below!

In fall 2016, the Town of Lincoln planted and made available to schools, residents and businesses over 150,000 tulip bulbs as part of the Canada 150 celebrations in 2017.  This spring, those blooms will create a spectacular splash of red and white across the Town.
