The event is normally held the weekend after the festival, but due to the long winter season, it was pushed another week. 

On Saturday volunteers joined City of Albany Gardener Jes Morgan, DGS staff, and members of the WPC for the annual ritual of digging up the city's iconic tulip bulbs. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to purchase 30 bulbs for $5.00 in exchange for their assistance. The remaining bulbs will be sold first-come-first serve to the public on Sunday.
