The installation may be viewed from all three levels of the mall, from 10am to 1pm. From 1pm to 1:30pm, children supported by Variety – the Children’s Charity, will be invited to pick tulips. After 1:30pm, the public will be invited to take their pick of the tulips to bring home, with a minimum donation of only $5 for five tulips. The event will continue until all of the 10,000 tulips have been picked. until all of the 10,000 tulips have been picked.
