Bug Fans of All Ages Welcome at Firefly Festival

Lightning bugs will take center stage at this weekend’s Firefly Festival.

On Sunday, July 15, people of all ages are welcome to join representatives from Arlington’s Department of Parks and Recreation for a celebration of the bugs that light up the night. There will be bug walks, games, crafts, educational talks and scavenger hunts.

Attendees are welcome to bring a blanket and a picnic to enjoy while the sun goes down and the fireflies emerge.

This event takes place from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Fort C.F. Smith Park (2411 N. 24th Street) and costs $5 per person, or $20 per family. It will be cancelled there is rain.

For more information about the event, call 703-228-6535.
