Lilac Festival

Highland Park, Rochester, New York is known as the Lilac Capitol of the World, and hosts an annual Lilac Festival.

I flew up to visit my brother in May and we had a delightful time looking at all the magnificent varieties of lilac plants in bloom, as well as enjoying the craft fair and food vendors. I never knew what a funnel cake was before, and it was delicious!
