A Parade of Lilacs This Weekend

By Linda Tancs

Spokane, Washington will be awash in lilac for the 72nd season during this weekend’s lilac festival.  The theme for this year’s torchlit parade on 15 May is “Freedom is Not Free,” a nod to the event’s long abiding collaboration with the local air force base to celebrate Armed Forces Day.  A number of local hotels are offering lodging packages for guests.  While you’re there, why not tour the new neighborhood aquatic center that opened yesterday. Or take the kids cycling on the Centennial Trail, a 37-mile paved trail from Nine Mile Falls to the state line. As they say in the Lilac City, bring your family and leave your worries behind.
