First Annual PA Firefly Festival

SAVE THE DATE: JUNE 21-23, 2013
We are hosting the first annual PA Firefly Festival here at Black Caddis Ranch B&B and the Cabins at Camp Fossil Creek.  We are so excited about this new event that in addition to the B&B and Cabins, we are opening the grounds to tent camping that weekend.  There are festivities planned for families and children of all ages.  We are planning on having special interest groups display and give out information concerning the forest and specifically fireflies.  T-shirts and blue flashlights will be on sale to raise money for the festival.  Family-friendly music, entertainment and door prize give-aways are planned for Saturday afternoon.  On Friday and Saturday nights, you will be able to visit several different sites through out the area to view and observe the diverse species of fireflies we have in the ANF. You will find that watching fireflies is a peaceful and awe inspiring activity.  We hope you will join us.

B&B Lodging of course includes a farm style breakfast.  We can accommodate family sizes from 2 to 10, and rates vary, starting at $60.00 per person/night.  We have two (2) bunkhouse cabins available this year, that will sleep up to 5 adults each; rates start at $60 per night.  The tent camping for the festival is primitive only, no electric, no water, and port-a-johns will be onsite for the event; rate is $10 per night/tent.  Tent sites are limited to 20 and reservations are required.  Make your reservations early.
