FIREFLY EXTRAVAGANZA in Orange City

Fireflies

FIREFLY EXTRAVAGANZA March 18th, through March 31st, 2019.

The fireflies have begun to arrive at Blue Spring State Park! It is finally that time of year when the skies of Blue Spring come alive with fireflies. 

Beginning Monday, March 18th, 2019, through March 31st, 2019, Blue Spring State Park will be offering nightly firefly walks for visitors to view the fireflies along the spring run as weather permits. The fireflies will not be active if we have rain.

Visitors must arrive at the park by 7 p.m. and will be allowed to stay until 9 p.m. (one hour past park closing) to view the fireflies. You will receive a parking pass and event sticker that will allow you to stay at the park for one hour after the park closes. Visitors will meet for a short briefing in front of the Thursby House at 7:45 p.m. each night.

There are a few changes to the event this year. Visitors will be able to walk the boardwalk without a guide and view the fireflies at their own pace. The viewing area will be restricted to the boardwalk area only. The gift shop will also be open this year! Volunteers will be available to provide direction and information.

The event fee is $10 (cash please) in addition to the $6 park entrance fee. The $10 event fee will go to the Friends of Blue Spring State Park organization (CSO) and will be used for park enhancements and educational programs. If you are a current CSO member, park admission is free with your membership (please bring your membership card).
