As I've mentioned before, Mt. View Cemetery is treated like a public piazza by the local community. Every day you'll find people jogging, walking their dogs, having picnics, practicing their instruments, and wandering about with their cameras. The cemetery itself hosts several events across the year. The Spring event is the Tulip Festival. Visitors come to admire the thousands of tulips planted each year by the cemetery. One of the local chapel buildings also hosts floral displays presented by various florists and garden groups. This event always signals that finer weather is on its way.
