Hummingbird Festival

Grafton, IL 62037

Did you know that a hummingbird’s wings average 70 beats per second? This tends to make them sound more like a bee than a small bird — in fact, the smallest bird in the world.
So, since they are so small and fast, people rarely have the chance to see a hummingbird up close. The annual Hummingbird Festival at Pere Marquette Lodge offers visitors that chance!
Watch as a local hummingbird expert measures, weighs, and bands the birds. The festival will also include unique craft and art vendors, live music, wine tasting, children’s activities, and restaurant favorites. For more information, please call (618) 786-2331.
