Hopping for Thanksgiving

By: L'jeanne, Advertising Manager

We’re going to hop hop hop right on over to Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium for Hoppy Thanksgiving! Every year for Hoppy Thanksgiving we invite everyone to enjoy the wonderful treats of a bug-filled thanksgiving.  When you come to the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium on November 26th and 27th we’ll have our traditional Thanksgiving foods with bugs!  They are oh so delicious. We’ve got all the great treats like turkey with cornbread and mealworm stuffing, wax worm cranberry sauce and cricket pumpkin pie. Don’t you just love those Thanksgiving traditions?  All the treats will be set up in Bug Appétit for you to see and learn how wonderfully edible insects are. Once you’ve had all the wax worm cranberry sauce you can stuff in your belly, head over to the Insect Encounters in Metamorphosis.  You can see all the insect life cycles and how they grow.  Next up for you to check out is the Insects of New Orleans.  We’ve got a bunch of bugs with character here in this city.  From those biting mosquitoes to the chomping termites we’ve got it all and you can see them up close.  How many eyes do mosquitoes have? How sharp are termite teeth? Well, come find out in the Insect of New Orleans Gallery.  And of course your visit won’t be complete without a trip through our beautiful serene Butterfly Garden. The Butterflies in Flight exhibit is such a wonderful gallery of free flying creatures.  Make sure you have your camera ready because these butterflies love to pose for photos.  Sometimes they even surprise you with a pose right on your head!  It is going to be a great Hoppy Thanksgiving break so be sure to come to the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium to celebrate another year of our traditional Thanksgiving bug feast!



Pssst……Oh boy we have a bonus for you! We will be open on Monday, November 25th at all our attractions!  Come have some Thanksgiving holiday fun all around Audubon for the holiday!
