Learn to love insects at Bug Fest

Organizers promise this year's installation of the annual celebration of creepy crawly creatures has events and activities that show "the grosser features of insects." There's bug yoga, bug walks, a Roach Race 500 and, of course, a chance to treat bugs culinarily — that is, to eat them.
