Bugs entertain in Elkhart

Posted:

Cockroaches, millipedes and other insects were the center of attention Sunday at Cobus Creek County Park.

Kids took delight in touching every creature that would make any mother cringe.  

The educational event offered activities for children and also themed snacks, such as chocolate covered crickets.

Volunteers were on hand to share their knowledge with visitors.

"I think the main goal is awareness.  Definitely education, families having fun together," says Nancy Brown with Elkhart Co. Soil and Water Conservation District.

There was also face painting and balloon animals for the kids who weren't as excited to get their hands on the bugs.
