Step into the wonder and beauty of butterflies, insects, spiders and their other many-legged friends at the Bug Ball!
Your little bugaboos will be able to play games, create spook-tacular crafts and take home lots of loot after they visit the many hand-painted Treat Houses. Families can spy on the amazing Owl Butterflies, which are only active during dusk and dawn, munch on a spook-tacular spread that will include themed menu items like creepy pizza fingers, scream cheese, eerie pudding, pumpking punch and more. You can even dance to Monster Jams!

Cost is $14 per person, $12 for members of the Missouri Botanical Garden, and free for infants 12 months and younger.
