Florida Bat Festival
 
Florida Bat Festival
Gainesville, Florida, USA
Late October
Description
The Lubee Bat Conservancy will host its 9th Annual Florida Bat Festival in Gainesville on October 26th, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This free event will provide a rare opportunity for guests to visit a working research and conservation center to see some of the largest bats in the world face-to-face. The festival will be held on the grounds of the conservancy, a 110-acre ranch, located at 1309 N.W. 192nd Avenue in Gainesville, FL and is the only day of the year when the center is open to the public. Each year this event features activities for the entire family, including live music, bouncy huts, bat-themed crafts and games for kids, presentations by bat experts, raffle prizes and the unique opportunity to see live fruit bats with 5ft wingspans on exhibit in our Bat Zone. Local vendors will be spread across the beautiful grounds of the conservancy providing local environmental and educational information as well as selling food, beverages, and batty merchandise. Donations are accepted at the festival and will be used to fund education and awareness programs for schools, libraries, scouting troops, and wildlife and conservation groups to promote awareness about the benefits bats provide.
