Old and new critters are back for their sixth-annual event at Hershey Gardens.

HERSHEY, Pa. — Tarantulas, lizards and snakes...oh my!  

The sixth-annual Bug-O-Rama will return to Hershey Gardens with familiar favorites for the whole family. The event will run on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In addition to the usual tarantulas, millipedes and cockroaches, Hershey Gardens plans to welcome small native and exotic reptiles and amphibians. These include snakes, lizards, frogs, geckos, and even a baby alligator!

Special guests during the event include Ryan the Bug Man with a variety of native and exotic insects, Pennsylvania Bat Rescue with live bats, and Refreshing Mountain Wildlife Center with a Green Tree Python.
