April 26
Bug & Bud Festival
Downtown Milford, 9 am - 4 pm
The Bug & Bud Festival is an ingenious celebration of both Arbor Day and lady bugs, the official bug of Delaware. In fact, it was second graders from Milford who petitioned to make the lady bug Delaware's official state bug in 1974. Stop by the Audubon booth and say hello! For more information, visit
