Current Resident: I love our community! We have a little bit of a culture, mostly centered around our town flower, the lilac. We have a park called Lilacia Park and every year is the Lilac Parade, and each year has its own theme and a contest on which float is the best to represent the theme. Our local Dairy Queen is quite the hotspot when it’s open, even if the business isn’t that popular in most other places. Every year we also have a contest for teenage girls in the town to compete for who will be the Lilac Queen, and who the Lilac Princesses will be, which has been a tradition for over 100 years! I remember being very young and going to meet the Lilac Princesses because they were role models for us younger girls. In the summer, we also have weekly Cruise Nights in our little downtown where there is live music and good places to get food and hangout with friends and family!
