Whether you call them bugs, insects, creepy crawlies, or anywhere in between, they are a crucial part of our world.

The Butterfly House & Aquarium and local community organizations are joining forces to spread the word of the importance of the largest group of animals in the animal kingdom!

Join us as we explore the world of bugs through fun games, interactive activities, crafts, animal encounters, and more at our first annual Bugapalooza!

To tame your appetite from all the excitement and activities, Squatch Wagon Food Truck will be here to serve up delicious homemade food!

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!! On Saturday, August 13th ONLY, when you stop by our FREE Bugapalooza event, you will receive a coupon good for one free youth with the purchase of an adult admission to the Butterfly House & Aquarium! Valid for that day only.
