Lombard celebrates its lovely lilacs

Chronicle Media Staff

Lombard’s annual month-long festival of all things lilacs comes to a close this weekend with heritage tours, wine tasting and a Sunday parade through town.

But there’s no immediate end to enjoying the delicate flowering plants, especially at the 8.5 acre downtown Lilacia Park which features 700 lilac varieties from around the world plus an estimated 25,000 tulips.

The images, scents and winding paths make Lilacia Park one of the most unique in DuPage County. For more information on the final weekend of activities, visit www.lombardlilactime.com.
