NYC kids are generally taught to fear the sight of creepy crawlers, but this midday fest celebrates them for their important role in the lives of plants. Join in a bug costume contest followed by a parade at noon, and watch lady bugs and praying mantises be released into the wild. Little ones can also oogle butterflies and take part in bug-themed crafts. The Dad Beats provide tunes, while Margaret Palca Bakes and House of Pizza cater snacks and Italian ices. Ages 2 to 8.
