Children will scatter throughout the gardens to find the perfect spot to release their share of ladybugs. The event will feature a Volkswagen Beetle, resembling a gigantic ladybug. It will also include nature displays, interactive activities, crafts and face painting.
Prizes will be awarded for the best ladybug costumes! Categories will be children under 2, ages 3 to 6, and 7 and older. There will also be a prize for the best family costumes.
