Michigan Bucket List: Mackinac Island’s Lilac Festival

For a relatively quaint little place, Michigan’s Mackinac Island does summer celebrations in a big way – and nothing is larger than its annual Lilac Festival. This year, islanders and visitors alike will be ringing in the 74th annual festival celebrating the heavily scented blooms that hold a unique place in Mackinac’s history. The 10-day event will include a huge parade down the Main Street section of the island’s M-185 – the only highway in Michigan where cars are banned – as well as live music, lilac tours, a 10K run/walk and the crowning of the festival’s Lilac Queen.
