83 degree days? We’ve made it, brahh! So, you best believe that we’re going to share with you some great events for you to enjoy some time outside…even some all summer long. As always, these are new listings that we haven’t covered on our blog yet…no need to be repetitive, huh? The full list of events can be found here if you’re interested.
Oh beehive! That’s cuz one of the world’s largest observation beehives is coming to Stew Leonard’s in Norwalk, starting at 11 am. The hive will hold more than 50,000 honeybees and measures 4X5 feet. Seems like a Common Core question in the making, huh? The honey will eventually be collected (over 100 lbs. worth) and will then be sold right at Stew Leonard’s. At the height of the season, there will be 75,000 bees inside!
