Bug Ball

Step into the wonder and beauty of butterflies, insects, spiders and their other many-legged friends! Your little bugaboos will be able to play games, create spook-tacular crafts and take home lots of loot after they visit our many hand-painted Treat Houses. Spy on the amazing owl butterfly, which are only active during dusk and dawn. When tummies rumble, guests will munch on a spook-tacular spread that will include themed menu items such as creepy pizza fingers, scream cheese, petrifying pastries, eerie pudding, frightful fruit, pumpkin punch, and much more! Families end the evening dancing to Monster Jams at the Bug Ball. Admission into the Butterfly House, activities, light refreshments, crafts, treats, and goody bags are included in the event ticket price. 

Space is limited and reservations are required.  Price is per person.
