Honey Fest!

If you’re looking for an outdoor activity on this beautiful day, and you’re reading this Sunday (Sept. 21) there’s still time to make it to the 10th Annual Honey Fest at the Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids.

The festival runs 1-4 p.m. at the Nature Center at 6665 Otis Rd. SE. Cost is $2 per person, or free for children under 3.

Nature Center staff note that honey is a sweet reason to appreciate bees, but pollination is their most important job. You can learn more about the importance of bees in pollinating your plants and more at the festival. Enjoy bee crafts and games, taste food made with honey, see how honey is extracted, enjoy music, and watch in wonder as a beekeeper dons a “beard” of live bees!
