- Things to Do
This one-of-a-kind event features thousands of fascinating creepy-crawlies including live insects, lizards, snakes, ladybugs and the famous “Madagascar hissing cockroaches.” Children can practice bug collecting, hands-on insect arts and crafts, and even taste cooked mealworm. Entomologists and other bug experts will be available for questions at several information booths that will teach and entertain children and adults alike.
