17th Annual Woolly Worm Festival

For The Daily Item

LEWISBURG — You’re invited to be a part of the 17th Annual Woolly Worm Festival, October 12th at Hufnagle Park in Lewisburg.

At 9:30, things will kick off with music from the hometown Green Dragon marching band and conclude with the winter weather prognostication at 4:00 by our own panel of experts, with M.C. and festival founder Mike Glazer at the helm.

You’ll see a team of highly skilled worm readers’ measure, weigh and analyze the little furry creatures in an attempt to predict the upcoming winter.  These little guys are to winter as Punxetawny Phil is to the spring!

There will be food, Woolly Worm races, crafts, games, live music, balloon artist, face painters, a magic show, a petting zoo and even PONY RIDES!

This is an event for the young and the young at heart!

For information please call Ken Kulish (cool-ish) at (570) 594-4691 or E-mail

This event is coordinated by the Kiwanis of Buffalo Valley AM in Lewisburg and proceeds are used to benefit the children of the Central Susquehanna Valley.
