Firefly Festival at Terhune Orchards

This Sunday, June 24, Terhune Orchards will host its annual Firefly Festival from 4 to 9 pm to celebrate fireflies and the beginning of summer. Terhune Orchards will stay open late for an evening of nature, music, wagon rides and firefly hunting. Naturalist Elaine Madigan and staff will talk about fireflies and conduct craft activities and games. Children can make their own bug boxes, antennae and firefly wings. Schafer Gymnastics will demonstrate the "Art of Flying." Grammy-winning Miss Amy & Her Big Kids Band will perform.

Grilled chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob, apple cider, donuts, pie, cookies and more will be available at Pam's Firefly Tent. There will be pony rides and wagon rides through the orchards all evening. Parking is available at the farm, located at 330 Cold Soil Road in Princeton. There is a $5 charge for the craft activities, but admission to the festival is free.
