It must be spring. On Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14, the Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine will host “Art at the Arb,” a weekend-long celebration of springtime that will feature local artists, live music, blooming tulips, great food, and the arboretum’s amazing garden landscapes.
Art at the Arb coincides with the annual Belle Plaine Tulip Festival. It is a separate event, but the Tulip Festival tram will take you to the arboretum.
