Honey Festival Aug. 6:

Mark your calendars for Sunday, Aug. 6 when the Honey Festival makes its buzzworthy return. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at O’Brien Park, visitors can indulge in a fun-filled event aimed at raising awareness and appreciation for the honeybee through an array of educational and entertaining activities.

In addition to bee-related vendors and experts, attendees can look forward to a kids corner, music performances and artistic displays.
