I've wanted to go to the Lilac Festival for years and I finally did this past Spring. The festival itself, outside of the music is just a way to get your money. That may not be a popular opinion, but I am not sorry for it. The true star of the show is walking Highland Park. I have walked may parks and arboretums, especially in cities. This one had a charm I have never experienced before. The many forms of lilacs, azaleas, rhododendrons and other types of plants were amazing. The view from the reservoir area blew me away. The walking trails were nice as well. The conservatory was beautiful. The smell in the air was amazing, and I mean from the plants, not the fried dough. If you are ever here and it is not the dead of winter, go to Highland Park.
