If you've never been to the Lilac Festival, you have GOT to go. This is a wonderful event that takes place every year, and is timed to coincide with the blooming of the lilac bushes that dominate this beautiful park. Sometimes the lilacs (and the weather) cooperate, and sometimes they don't. Regardless, how can you NOT have fun at this event and in this park?
During the Lilac Festival, there are hundreds of craftsmen booths set up, selling everything from jewelry to paintings to jams/jellies and scarves. It's wonderful to browse their exhibits before strolling up the hill and viewing all the lilac blooms. I try never to miss this event! The food tent, meanwhile, has all kinds of delicious local restaurants cooking up their best fares, while the stage across from the tent features live music from some of the better-known local bands. What a time!
Even if you cannot make it during the festival, the whole hillside of the park is a botanical adventure, with gorgeous trees, bushes, and flowers of all kinds. Bring along a picnic lunch if you're there outside of the festival dates, and find a nice hidden spot amongst the flora. You can't help but enjoy yourself!
