I went with a friend on Sunday--Mothers' Day. Fortunately, we went early and were ready to leave when the crowd became unbearable. The lilacs are at perfect bloom for enjoying and the craft show is very high quality.
Sounds like a nice time...I really should go to that one of these years...I love lilacs.
I grew up in Rochester, and remember as a child going to the Lilac Festival - and that was almost 60 years ago, lol, altho they didn't have all the extra's they do now.
I live near Syracuse, and try to go every 3 or 4 years....great flowers.....great time.
