106th "Lilac Sunday" at the Arnold Arboretum! FUN + Tours + Food +Events + FREE!

Let's enjoy the 106th "Lilac Sunday" at the Arnold Arboretum! This is a FUN Event! It is FREE!

Of the thousands of flowering plants in the Arboretum, only one, the lilac, is singled out each year for a daylong celebration. With more than 370 lilac plants of 176 kinds, the Arboretum holds one of the premier lilac collections in North America.

Tours of the lilacs, family activities, displays, food vendors, and picnicking (on this special day only) make for a memorable day. Be a part of this beloved Boston tradition!

On Lilac Sunday, the Arboretum is open as usual from dawn to dusk. Activities are scheduled from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and refreshments are available from 11:00am to 3:00pm.

We will attend this with the Japanese Flower Arranging Meetup which hosts FUN Flower Events + FUN Japanese Events.  Check it out HERE.

We will meet in front of the Hunnewell Visitor Center Building at the Main Gate. I will have a Meetup Sign with me.

MBTA: Orange Line: Forest Hills stop. Street parking along the Arboretum perimeter is limited and visitors are advised to take public transportation.

    HI, I tried to call Solveig but the calls failed, so I couldn't meet up with you all. There seems to have been 20 or 30,000 people there! It was a good time just the same.

      Oh no, I'm sorry Michael. I thought I posted my number here correctly! :-/ Unfortunately, we could not make it in time and were at the Arboretum in the afternoon. Hope to meet you all at another event soon!

    HI,
    Thursday I did a Photo Shoot of 121 pictures at the Arboretum. I call the shoot "New Life", because of everything coming into being. The photos are breathtaking. I will most likely join you all after 12 noon sometime. I'll bring my phone & call Solvejg to find out where you all are.

    Dear Lilac Sunday Walkers,

    Solvejg will arrive late with her Husband. Could any of you volunteer to give her your cellphone number--so she can meet the Group?

    Thanks for your kind help! Kim
