Lilac Festival May 11-20th - they have a website for it <a href="http://www.lilacfestival.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.lilacfestival.com/index.html</a><br><br>
There are other festivals coming up, not sure of all the dates, but they might be starting soon. Check out the events in Rochester at <a href="http://www.myrochester.com/" target="_blank">http://www.myrochester.com/</a><br>
(i didn't even know about this site until i was looking for you.)<br><br>
Seneca Park Zoo. It's associated with many other zoos, so if you have a zoo membership somewhere else, it may be free.<br><br>
Strong Museum (fantastic for little kids, and fun for older ones as well - though my teens hate to admit they like a 'kid' museum.) Again they are associated with other children's museums so you can save on admission if you belong to any other museums. I highly recommend going to this museum.<br><br>
If you are outside the city, in Naples area they have the Cummings Nature<br>
Center - it is associated with the Rochester Museum and Science Center.<br>
You need to check the hours though, b/c they are open for limited days, but the nature trails are really nice. I think they have a suggested donation for admission. The Roch Museum and Science Center is geared toward older kids - you can go, but your kids won't get much out of it.<br><br>
In Henrietta, south of Rochester, they have the Tinker Nature Center - that one is free and they have a fun playground next to it.<br><br>
Springdale Farm, near Brockport/Spencerport area (West of Rochester) is a kid farm, it is free to get in. I think they charge to get into their new dairy barn.<br><br>
There are many many parks around Rochester also. Without knowing where you are staying, it is hard to advise you there.

Is the 2.5 y.o. by any chance a train buff?<br><a href="http://www.rgvrrm.org/visit/" target="_blank">http://www.rgvrrm.org/visit/</a><br><br>
Also Highland park even when it's not the Lilac Festival is nice, and look into Corbett's Glen Nature trail for a good freebie. There is a public market, too. Oh, and the Genesee County Museum might be fun. Also, try up near the lake, in Charlotte there is a good playground right near the water.<br><br><a href="http://www.rocwiki.org" target="_blank">www.rocwiki.org</a> and <a href="http://www.kidsoutandabout.com" target="_blank">www.kidsoutandabout.com</a> are two more good sites for information.<br><br>
HTH!

There is almost surely something on the RocWiki page about it. It's called the "public market" so you could also Google it with "Rochester" and see what you get.<br><br>
