Attention Parents: Firefly Festival

This Sunday, June 27, Terhune Orchards will host its annual Firefly Festival from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm. In celebration of fireflies and the insects and wild animals that live at the farm, Terhune Orchards will present an evening of nature, music, wagon rides and firefly hunting.

Terhune Orchards' naturalist Elaine Madigan and staff will talk about fireflies and conduct craft activities and games. Miss Amy & Her Big Kids Band will perform at 5:45 pm and 7:00 pm, and Schafer Gymnastics will demonstrate the "art of flying." There is a $5 charge for the craft activities, but admission to the festival is free.

Grilled chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob, apple cider, the popular apple cider donuts and more will be available at Pam's Firefly Tent. There will be pony rides and wagon rides through the farm and orchards all evening. Parking is available at the farm, located at 330 Cold Soil Road in Princeton.
