Long Description:
The hummingbirds swarm and perform in the gardens while Rusty Trump & friends (all federally licensed bird banders) band hummingbirds during the annual migration south for the winter. Submit your name in a drawing to earn the chance to release a hummingbird from the palm of your hand after it gets banded! See artists & exhibitors with bird, garden and nature-themed arts & crafts. Enjoy the special projects, games & children's activities. 2008 will mark the 4th annual festival. 2007 attendance was estimated at nearly 4000 visitors for the two days.
