Bug Fest: Kettle Creek
July 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Monroe County Conservation District’s Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center Celebrates Bug Fest 2018
Bug Fest is a celebration of insects! And great fun for families with children ages 4 – 12! This annual festival, generously sponsored by the Kettle Creek Environmental Fund, will be held on Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center in Bartonsville. Families are invited to come out and have some buggy fun with live critters, displays, games, and take home crafts; all day, all about our six legged friends! All day activities include insect safaris, live insects, insect collections, painting with maggots and games. The Insect Olympics will also take place twice at 11:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. Come dressed as your favorite bug, nymph or caterpillar and participate in the Insect Parade!
There is a $5 admission fee for children under 12. Come dressed as your favorite bug and receive a $1 discount on the admission fee. Parents are FREE. No pre-registration is necessary. Due to limited parking, we are encouraging families to attend in either the morning session 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or the afternoon session from 12:30 to 3 p.m.
