Look out! The bugs are back! Check out the incredible extravaganza of insects at the Randall Museum’s annual Bug Day. Do you adore arthropods, or do creepy crawlies make you queasy? Either way you should find something here to tickle your fancy. There’ll be hoppers, slitherers, and crawlers, and even insects you can pop in your mouth to eat!
Kids and their families are invited to join in the insect-inspired fun and learn how important these little creatures are to the earth and our survival here. Visitors can make their own fabulous bug-related crafts to take home and play the buggiest games in town. Enjoy live entertainment and bring a picnic lunch to take advantage of the Randall’s lawn with a view, …maybe even spot a few wild insects in the grass!
The San Francisco Beekeepers Association is co-sponsoring the event and will have a hive of live honeybees on display. Kids can decorate containers of freshly made beeswax lip balm to take home, plus there will be honey collected from hives all over the city and other bee-made products for sale.
The Randall Museum is owned and operated by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
