The highly anticipated Firefly Fling Festival is set to illuminate the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks on Saturday, July 15 from 5 to 10 pm. The Garden will transform into a whimsical realm, inspiring its guests to embrace the magic of the outdoors.
We encourage you to get in the spirit of the event by dressing up as a fairy, pirate, superhero, or any other magical creature!
Stop at our community partner booths offering interactive activities and engaging displays related to nature, including live insects, an observation bee hive, a worm farm, a goat petting zoo, seed bomb making, fairy house building, and more.
Grab dinner or a snack from food trucks like Flavorful Kettle Corn, The Little Red Barn, The Smackin’ Shack, Smith and Betts Barbecue, Wicked Wood Fired Pizza and a sweet treat from Burton’s Creamery, Jarabes Tapatios, and Pedal Pops. For the first year, alcohol will be available for purchase for guests 21 & up.
Express yourself with face painting, henna tattoos, temporary glitter tattoos, hair tinsel, and permanent jewelry. Grab a beautiful bouquet from Eden’s Flower Truck. Visit the Kindness & Joy Toys tent to shop for wands, wings, masks, countless glow-in-the-dark items, and so much more! Take pictures with roaming magical stilt walkers; real-life fairies, mermaids, and pirates; and even a unicorn!
Dance and sing along with Candy Lee for “Backyard Bugs,” Jennifer Brinkley for storytime with animals, Katie Dwyer for a kids’ concert with movement, and everyone’s favorite energetic party band – JukeBoxx! Don’t leave early! As the sun goes down, we will make a “community wish,” have a “glow party,” watch an amazing fire dancing performance, and enjoy a laser light show.
We are so excited for families to come together, embrace the magic of the event, enjoy the nature that surrounds them, and to make lasting memories!
