Enjoy the 108th "Lilac Sunday" at the Arnold Arboretum. It is FREE!
Of the thousands of flowering plants in the Arboretum, only one, the lilac (http://arboretum.harvard.edu/plants/featured-plants/lilacs/), 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 (http://arboretum.harvard.edu/plants/featured-plants/lilacs/) in North America.
Tours of the lilacs, family activities, 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.
Bonus: also enjoy the Arboretum's Bonsai collection
We will meet in front of the Hunnewell Visitor Center Building at the Main Gate. The plan is to join a Lilac Tour together.
PLEASE NOTE: If you plan to picnic at the Arboretum, it is STRONGLY suggested to bring your own food/drink as the Food Trucks typically run out of food early in the day. (Guests are known to discreetly bring in a bottle of wine to enjoy with their picnic).
