Insect fair draws enthusiastic crowds

Penn State's Department of Entomology hosted The Great Insect Fair at the Ag Arena on the University Park campus on Sept. 17. Visitors explored a variety of insect-related displays, collections, activities and games that included an insect deli, which offered some interesting snacks to fair-goers brave enough to try them. Go to to view photos from the fair.

The 2011 edition of the fair offered participants the opportunity to explore in a butterfly tent, cheer at cockroach races, play a round of insect miniature golf and more. Collections of regional and exotic insects provided a fun and educational experience for both young and old. The event was free to the public.
