First Annual Firefly Festival


The cherry on top of a warm summer night is when nature’s fireworks come to play. Littering the night sky like stardust, fireflies embody joyful innocence and a simpler time when jars and hands captured moments as well as these luminous insects. The first annual Firefly Festival celebrates these moments with naturalist led walks accompanied by the sounds of frogs and other insects. The festival will also have firefly counts for the citizen science program Firefly Watch, children’s arts and crafts and complimentary refreshments.

8:30-10pm Thursday, July 23. Sylvan Prairie Park, 8601 Brint Rd. Free
