There were probably a total of 6 hummingbirds and a total of maximum 10 tents. The admission is $10 for seniors. I think it was a total waste of my time and money.

There are more hummingbirds in my yard. WE WENT TODAY AND SAW THREE HUMMERS, ONE IN A FEEDER CAGE, TWO BEING BANDED. There is junk to buy, low end festival items and t-shirts. STAY AWAY.

What a great place to visit! Wonderful birds, especially hummers migrating south in fall. The hummingbird festival in September is not to be missed. Three day event with hummingbird banding, speakers and kid activities.
