Fiddlers and Fireflies

One of our most popular family programs returns! Begin your summer with an old fashioned family picnic. Bring your supper and spread your blanket and lawn chairs. As the fireflies begin to flicker under the trees and in the tall grasses around the property at Mt. Pleasant, listen to musician and storyteller Bill Wellington from Stanton Virginia, who electrifies audiences with his storytelling, “roses are red poems,” and family music programs. Little kids and adults, come dance to the fiddles and sing old-timey songs!  Learn interesting facts about fireflies and make a firefly craft.

Tickets: Simply purchase one ticket per car that is attending upon arrival at the event. $10 per car. No advance registration needed. 

For this busy event, please leave your pets at home. In event of rain, check website.
