Sunday, May 27th 2012, marks the date of the 23rd annual 4th Street Lilac Festival, and the streets have never been hotter!
In 2011 an estimated 125,000 Calgarians participated in this fabulous one-day festival. They enjoyed the wide array of entertainers that were featured on stages and entertainment zones along 4th Street in the heart of the Mission district.
In addition, they had an opportunity to shop at over 500 craft, food and entertainment vendors along the 13 blocks of the festival. With something for almost everyone to see and do participants were dancing in the streets to the smooth sounds and scrumptious tastes. Fourth Street is known for it's diverse cultural restaurants - "you can eat around the world on 4 th " - and those restaurants took to the streets that day selling samples of their fabulous menus.
The Lilac Festival has been voted Calgary's best free festival!
