Honey Weekend at Wave Hill 2013


The weather could not have been any more beautiful for the annual Wave Hill Honey Weekend, the family-friendly celebration of all things honey. As you'll see by clicking through our photos, above, the event's young participants could not have been any sweeter either. Little ones got to check out a real beehive and meet a beekeeper, taste different kinds of honey, get to work on a beeswax candle and, most fun of all, "be a bee" by making bee costumes, spreading their wings and "flying" in a honeybee parade. If you wish you hadn't missed it, mark the garden's Raptor Day on your calendar; it takes place on Monday, October 14 (Columbus Day) and also features the real deal: live birds of prey.
