the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
Sunday, May 9, 2010
Of the thousands of flowering plants in the Arboretum, only one, the lilac, is singled out each year for a daylong celebration. Tours of the lilacs, storytelling with Andrea Lovett, dance performances, picnicking (allowed on this special day only), and family activities make for a memorable day. Be a part of this beloved Boston tradition!
