Carnival + Bugs = Insectival

|

racesThe traditional carnival gets a buggy twist this weekend at the Butterfly Pavilion‘s Insectival. Booths of cotton candy, face painting, and ring tosses are interspersed with nature walks, ladybug releases, and cockroach races (pictured here).

The courageous should check out the insect-eating contest (chocolate-covered mill worms, sour and cream crickets)–and the more subdued can head to the shady gazebo for stories about spiders and other bugs.
