What makes Julian lilacs so special?
It is their beautiful smell, which they get from being grown at a higher elevation and in a colder climate. This magnificent scent draws in people from all around who want to experience its delightful aroma.
Fort Cross Old Timey Adventures will celebrate these lovely blooms with its annual Lilac Festival. This year, the event begins March 24 and runs every weekend through April, for as long as lilacs are available, 10am-4pm. Visit fortcross.com for more information.
Fort Cross, located at 4425 Highway 78 in Santa Ysabel, is home to a five-acre grove, offering fresh-cut flowers right from the bush.
In addition to basking in the glorious lilac scent, visitors will be able to participate in a number of fun activities in the area.
