We are now observing more firefly activity every day, and the excitement is growing. We observed fireflies at all of the Kellettville sites on Sunday evening. They are just starting to emerge, and we expect them to be at peak next weekend for the first annual PA Firefly Festival. We couldn't be more excited, so now all we need is great weather.
Whether you are coming for the entire weekend or just to enjoy one evening, we recommend that you dress for an evening in the forest, wear sturdy shoes, bring a lawn chair/blanket and use bug repellent. There will be a fundraising hotdog sale Saturday evening. Local restaurants, Cougar Bob's Kellettville Tavern and Flying W, will be open, but picnics and coolers are permitted at the festival.
This is a FREE event, but there will be PAFF T-shirts and Blue-light flashlights for sale to support future festivals. We will even "convert" your personal flashlight to a firefly-friendly blue for a donation.
Check earlier blog posts for more specific details, schedule of events and overnight accommodations.
Remember in the event of severe thunderstorms the events will have to be cancelled.
