Lilac Festival (Rochester, NY)

The annual Lilac Festival in Rochester, New York celebrates the abundance of lilacs in the city’s Highland Park. Horticulturalist John Dunbar began the garden in 1892; the festival began six years later as a one-day event for people to enjoy the recently adorned park. Today this is a ten-day festival during which visitors admire more than 1,200 lilac bushes of more than 500 varieties. In addition to viewing the flowers, visitors to the Lilac Festival can also sample a wide array of international foods and enjoy concerts, art shows, and other free festival events. More…:
