Bugs and Butterflies

People often tend to squash or swat away insects when they encounter them — but that’s not always a good thing. There are many insects who deserve respect and need your love.

This weekend, bug lovers will join with the staff at Tyler Arboretum (515 Painter Road, Media, 610-566-9134, www.tylerarboretum.org) for a special event focusing on insects.

On August 26, Tyler, which is one of the oldest and largest arboreta in the northeastern United States, will host the “Bugs and Butterflies” from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The arboretum will have butterfly experts available to provide information on creating a butterfly-friendly habitat in home gardens — an environment featuring all the butterflies’ favorite plants.

Visitors will be able to learn all about butterflies that are native to our area — how they transform from egg to caterpillar, then to chrysalis, and finally to butterfly.

In Tyler Arboretum’s Butterfly House, visitors will be treated to looks at a wide array of native butterflies, including Spicebush Swallowtails, Eastern Tailed Blues, Great Spangled Fritillaries, and, of course, Monarchs.

Tyler Arboretum, a non-profit public garden, encompasses 650 acres of renowned plant collections, heritage and champion trees and historic buildings — along with 17 miles of hiking trails through woodlands, wetlands and meadows.

Kids of all ages can participate in games and make-and-take crafts throughout the day.

Visitors will be able to learn about bees from Church Lane Apiary.

Admission to the festival is included with general admission tickets, which are $15 for adults (ages 16-64), $13 for seniors (65 and older) and $9 for youths (ages 3-15) and military. Children (under 3) are admitted free.

If you’re in the mood to enjoy some live country music this weekend without having to raid your rainy day savings account, you should go to Sweet Tea Trio’s concert on August 24 at the Sellersville Theater (24 West Temple Avenue, Sellersville, 215-257-5808, www.st94.com).

Sweet Tea Trio — Savannah Coker, Kate Falcon and Victoria Camp – is a band that delivers country sounds with three-part vocal harmonies and catchy lyrics.

“We’re three girls from three different parts of Alabama,” said Coker, during a phone interview last week from Nashville. “I’m from Birmingham, Kate is from Southside and Victoria is from Tuscaloosa.”

Now based in Nashville, the trio met in 2013 through a Birmingham artist development program called Nashville Bound. Each artist sang individually when they initially entered the program but quickly felt an instant vocal connection once they sang together. They have been performing together ever since.

“We didn’t know each other until we met at Nashville Bound,” said Coker. “Kate was 14, Victoria was 16 and I was 15. They put three singers together in a room. We got along really well and here we are five years later.”

Falcon said, “After Nashville Bound, we learned another song and entered a singing competition in Mississippi. We won the competition and it just kept going from there.”

Camp said, “We’ve been together ever since Nashville Bound and now we all live in Nashville. Our first album – a self-titled EP – came out in May 2017.”

Sweet Tea Trio got its first real break when the girls signed to a joint venture management agreement between Robert Ritchie (aka Kid Rock) and Ken Levitan (founder and head of Vector Management).

“We’re working on honing our skills,” said Falcon. “We want to do more recording in Nashville. Our manager is Kid Rock and we’ve been writing with him a lot.”

If you’re a sport hunter or a member of the NRA, this is a band for you.

The song that initially caught Kid Rock’s attention was a tune called “Huntin’ is Good,” which they introduced at the World Deer Expo in Birmingham, Alabama. It featured lyrics such as “With a click-click, bang-bang, he was down; Oh don’t you know I love to hear that sound when a whitetail hits the ground.”

“Huntin’ is Good” was the trio’s first song to garner major attention from the hunting industry.  Their performance and professional skills landed them the chance to sing at the annual Country Goes Hunting event in Blakely, Georgia in March 2014 and 2015.

“We’re all three grew up hunting,” said Coker. “We love the spirit of hunting.”

Camp said, “We love the blessing of hanging a beautiful buck with a 12-point rack – but we do eat the meat too.”

“We’re working on recording again,” said Camp. “It could be an EP or an album. It’s still undecided. With the way the industry is now, singles seem better than albums. So, it’s probably going to be an EP.”

Falcon said, “With the instruments, twang and Southern harmonies, our main feel is country. But, we also have a rock side.”

Camp said, “Any artist doesn’t want to limit creativity. We are marketing for country. But, we’re writing differently. It’s more like country rock.”

One of the most popular late-summer events in southeastern Pennsylvania will take place this weekend in Lancaster.

The barbecue competition is a major drawing card, but the event also has all that you would expect from a country fair — food vendors, children’s activities and souvenir stands.

For the kids, there will be face painting, “Tag-Along,” a clown teaching how to make animal balloons and “Kid’s Q” where they can learn how to barbecue.

Also, on August 24, there will be an “Elvis Tribute Show” performed by Jeff Krick.

This month’s edition of the “Full Moon Tour” at the Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania (465 Speedwell Forge Road, Lititz, 717-626-4617, http://wolfsanctuarypa.org) is scheduled for August 25.

The Sanctuary offers this tour once a month on the closest Saturday to the full moon. This month, it’s slated for this Saturday and the full moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon.

This event allows participants to create their own experiences. Instead of following a tour guide from pack to pack at a regulated pace that fits within a 45-minute time line, you get to go at your own pace from pack to pack.

With this tour, you move at whatever speed you find comfortable. If you get tired, you can go over and sit next to a roaring bond fire (weather permitting) and just relax.

Visitors are requested to bring a blanket, a flashlight, a chair and maybe some hot dogs and marshmallows.

The Allentown Fair

The Allentown Fair (17th and Chew Street, Allentown, 610-433-7541, www.allentownfairpa.org) is without a doubt one of the oldest festivals in Pennsylvania – and one of the oldest in the country. It’s an event that has been drawing large crowds ever since ’52 – that’s 1852.

The popular Allentown Fair was first staged in October 1852 when the Lehigh County Agricultural Society held its first fair. The huge annual fair in Allentown is still one of the state’s premier late-summer attractions.

Now known as “The Great Allentown Fair”, the 2017 edition opens on August 29 and runs through September 4. It will be the fair’s 165th anniversary this year.

The Allentown Fair is a fun-filled event that spans generations and appeals to people of all ages.

On August 26, the annual Ukrainian Folk Festival at the Tryzub Ukrainian American Sport Center (County Line and Lower State roads, Horsham, 215-343-5412,www.tryzub.org) will celebrate its 27th anniversary from noon-8 p.m.

The event is billed as “A resplendent outdoor summer concert marking Ukraine’s independence, the unity of her people, their struggle for freedom and dignity and Ukraine’s entry into the family of advanced democratic nations.”

The artists (dance troupes, musicians, singers and ensembles that have performed in previous years) have created a dynamic and integrated collaborative program. The artistic unity underscores the theme — “United Ukraine — United with Us.”

Recent events in Ukraine such as the twilight struggle against unlawful Russian aggression have forged a unified Ukrainian national identity — both in Ukraine and in the Diaspora.

America’s support of Ukraine’s commitment to a self-determined democratic future — to life, liberty, freedom and justice — has created permanent bonds of friendship between the two nations. This year’s festival honors these special relationships and developments.

The festival, which is one of the most popular late-summer ethnic festivals in the area, starts at noon with children’s activities, vendor areas with Ukrainian crafts, food booths and live music.

The live entertainment at the festival includes performances by Efsane Crimean Tatar Ensemble, Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble, Iskra Ukrainian Dance Ensemble, violinist Innesa Tymochko Dekajlo and Vox Ethnika Orchestra.

From 4:30-8 p.m., it will be time for “Zabava,” which is billed as a “Public Social Dance.” The “Zabava” at this year’s 27th annual staging of the festival, will feature the Vox Ethnika Orchestra performing a variety of eastern European dance music, including traditional, modern, ballroom and Polka.

There also will be vendors selling a wide variety of mouth-watering Ukrainian foods such as pyrohy (pierogies), holuptsi (stuffed cabbage) and kowbasa (kielbasa). Other items available for purchase include baked goods, picnic fare and cold beverages.

If you purchase online, print out ticket and bring it with you for entry.
