Each year at Dow's Lake the NCC sets up this entry arch to the Tulip Festival tents and vendor area.
With the added awareness of arches in life caused by the construction of the celebrated Chinatown Arch on Somerset Street, I paused to look at this tulip arch. It is simple, a metal frame with canvas infill. It does work to create an entry point. And person after person stopped to take a picture of it. I was astounded how many photos were taken in the ten minutes I watched the arch.
It drove home how photographed and memorialized the new Chinatown Arch will be once it is finished and everyone will have to take a picture of it.
