What a great time to be a bee! Enjoy a sweet weekend at Honey Weekend at Wave Hill on Aug. 11 and 12.
Children can outfit themselves with wings, antennae, a pollen cup, and a kazoo to hum with. Buzz around in a hive of six-sided cells and forage in the flowers. Join in a bee parade and do a bee dance in a cardboard hive. Parade begins at 12:30 pm, weather permitting.
Or, drop in and make a beeswax candle to take home.
Kids can also chat with beekeepers, try on beekeeping gear, peek inside a hive, and learn fascinating facts about honeybees.
Honey Weekend on Aug. 11 and Aug. 12, from 10 am to 3 pm. Most events are free with garden admission; there is a $15 materials fee for the candle workshop ($8 adults, $2 children 6–18, children under 6 free. Admission is free until noon on Saturday).
