    Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - The Lilac Festival will be closed on Monday, May 13.

    Organizers say heavy rain fall and Monday's forecast are the reasoning behind the closing.

    However, the music will not be missed. The evening headliners, The BB King Blues Band featuring Michael Lee of NBC’s The Voice and Danielle & The Tomorrow People, will perform at Anthology on East Avenue.

    The concert will be free, but there is limited spacing.

    PS The lilacs have not started to make their spring debut.
