Bugs thrive during the summer months. They invade picnics, creep inside houses and tickle your leg while you're trying to sit still at your cousin's outdoor wedding. They come in waves of impossible numbers--resistance is futile. Well, you know what they say: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Join Idaho Botanical Garden's Bug Day to do just that. Featuring bug bingo, insect Olympics, edible insects and more, this party will both thrill you and fill you with useful information about various creepy critters. Bug out!
9 a.m. $4-$8. Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 Old Penitentiary Rd., Boise, idahobotanicalgarden.org.
