The annual Lighthouse Point Park Migration Festival will be this Sunday, September 25th from 8AM-2PM. Right now the weather is looking great.
You can see photos from past year's festivals here:
This is always a great event and features free flying falconry demonstrations from Brian Bradley's Skyhunters in Flight. Brian will have a Gyrfalcon, Steppe Eagle, Eurasian Eagle Owl and several other very cool birds. The Connecticut Audubon Society will again be providing banding demonstrations. This gives a great opportunity to see wild birds up close and personal. One year they caught a Connecticut Warbler. Who knows what this year will bring!
Other attractions include:
Bird and butterfly walks!
See and feel Long Island Sound Creatures in touch tanks!
Children's activities and fun for the whole family!
Ride the Old-Fashioned Carousel!
Tour the Historic Lighthouse!
Hands-on Butterfly Tagging!
Bird walks and more!
Suggested donation: $5/car. Proceeds go towards next year's event.
