Join friends and neighbors for free birding tours, live entertainment, exhibitors and much more at Birdapalooza, a celebration Feb. 7 of the rich diversity of birds and wildlife on Lake Apopka on the shores of one of Florida’s largest lakes.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is one of many sponsors involved with the festival. The Lake Apopka Wildlife Festival & Birdapalooza starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. Feb. 7 at Magnolia Park, 2929 S. Binion Road, Apopka.

“Worthwhile” is the word Dennis Renfro, an FWC biologist, uses to describe Birdapalooza. “It will be a day of fun and learning for the whole family.”

This year’s event features nature and photography walking tours on the Lake Apopka Loop Trail, bus tours, music and entertainment, exhibitors and vendors, a bounce house, a tree giveaway, face painting, live animal demonstrations and more.
