Bernheim to Host BugFest and Fall Plant Sale
Bernheim will be abuzz for its annual BugFest and Fall Plant Sale on Saturday, September 19. Children can dance the buggy boogie, go on an insect safari, taste a chocolate-covered cricket and make a new six or eight-legged friend of their own. They can even don a bug costume and join in the Parade of Bugs.
BugFest and the Fall Plant Sale run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bernheim Horticulturists will be on hand to share information on the Bernheim Select™ trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials available for purchase.
