Local correspondent Peggy Kozak checked in earlier today with a time-saving tip for Lombard home buyers.
If you're planning to visit a Lombard open house this Sunday, set out early, cautions Kozak. The popular Lombard Lilac Parade kicks off at 1:30 Sunday afternoon and slows area traffic to a crawl. The parade caps off the Lilac Festival, a major event in "the lilac village."
Kozak manages Coldwell Banker's Lombard office, which is hosting a number of open houses this Sunday.
