Lombard's Lilac Time offers a variety of blooms, activities
May 3, 2013 10:29 AM - One of the strengths of Lombard's lilac collection is its variety. Some bushes bloom early, reminding visitors Lilac Time is on its way. Other plants hit the nail on the head, bursting with fragrance and purple blooming beauty from May 4 to 19 -- this year's dates for the annual festival held in Lilacia Park, 150 S. Park Ave. The festival offers activities as varied as the types of lilacs, including art fairs, library events, culinary activities and a 5K.
