R is for Rain.
The best local festival of the year just might be Rochester's Lilac festival. Unfortunately, the weather refuses to cooperate this year. Not only is it wet and rainy, it's downright cold! I found this notice on the Lilac Festival's official homepage-
UPDATE: Tuesday, May 17th - Due to continued inclement weather and today’s frigid weather forecast festival activities will remain closed with the exception of our Food and Festival Merchandise Vendors located at the Pansy Bed (corner of Highland & Goodman). Highland Park remains open as well as the Conservatory. Please use surrounding streets for parking. Any illegally parked cars will be towed.
The lilacs in my own yard are somewhat waterlogged too.
