There are so many reasons to get excited for spring. Your nose won't freeze the moment you step outside, you can eat mini egg everything, and the whole province bursts into flowery blooms. One of the most beautiful spring flowers is the lilac, and you can celebrate the return of this purple blossom at this dreamy festival. Ontario's Lilac Capital is a floral paradise you need to explore this spring.

This small community is known as 'The Lilac Capital Of Ontario", and you can wander through a dreamy paradise of blooms each year.

Franktown is located in Lanark County, less than an hour outside of Ottawa.

The area is home to Lilac Lane, a park filled with tons of stunning purple flower bushes.

You can get lost in a floral paradise in this stunning lilac forest.

Franktown hosts a Lilac Festival each year to celebrate the fragrant blooms.

The event will take place on May 23, 2020. You can indulge in a pancake breakfast to kick off the festivities and take a magical horse-drawn wagon ride through the flower forest.

The event has free admission, but activities such as the pancake breakfast will have a price.

However, lilacs aren't in bloom for long, so don't miss your chance to see these spectacular posies. 

It's never too early to start planning your spring travels. There are so many floral festivals happening around the province that are worth adventuring to.

Warkworth, Ontario has its own lilac festival, and you can smell the blooms, shop at local vendors, and even play a purple piano.

There is also a festival dedicated entirely to peonies happening near Toronto, and you can get drunk off the gorgeous flowery aromas. 

You can indulge in more purple blooms at this hidden lavender field in Ontario as well this spring.

Get ready to smell the lilacs at Franktown's dreamy festival and explore a pastel forest of stunning flowery bushes.
