It will be loads of natural educational butterfly fun — butterfly exhibits, butterfly and bug parade, an insect zoo, hay rides, nature walks around the Watershed, and interactive-enviro-zones.

Also, guests can enjoy the tunes of The Dadz, as well as the Grammy-winner kid’s musical artist, Miss Amy. Local food will be available for purchase by a variety of vendors including Hopewell Borough’s Antimo’s Pizza.

The cost is $25 per carload (or $10 per person) or get your discounted tickets online ahead of time. Parking is available at Bristol Meyer’s through the delivery entrance on Titus Mill Road across the road from the Watershed with a free shuttle to the festival.
