Thousands of creepy crawlers will invade the Bronco Student Center on Oct. 16 and 17 during the annual Insect Fair. Held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the event features live and preserved bugs on display, roach races, a petting zoo, jewelry sales and edible insects for purchase.
Admission is $6 for adults, and $4 for students and children ages 3 to 12. Children under 2 are admitted free. Parking is available in lots K, B and C.
Proceeds from the event supports the Agricultural Biology Club, which caters to students interested in entomology and environmental health. Each year, students travel abroad to study, collect and catalogue foreign insects, as well as visit museums and universities. In the past, the club has traveled to New Zealand, Costa Rica, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
