BugFest and Fall Plant Sale

By Amy Joseph Landon

Bernheim will be abuzz for its annual BugFest and Fall Plant Sale this Saturday (September 20). Children can dance the buggy boogie, go on an insect safari, taste a chocolate-covered cricket and make a new six Boy and Bug Stare Downor eight-legged friend of their own. They can even don a bug costume and join in the Parade of Bugs.

BugFest and the Fall Plant Sale run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Bernheim Horticulturalists will be on hand to share information on the Bernheim Select™ trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials available for purchase.
