Enjoy live music performed by the Bug Trotters, a group of friends who get together to play Old-Time Square Dance music. Together, they represent more than a half-dozen Central Illinois bands, but for Illinois State Museum events they perform under the Bug Trotters name. They will be providing lively tunes played on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and harmonica.

This program is part of the "Let's Fly a Kite" event where visitors of all ages may enjoy learning how to fly pole kites, wind resistance exploration, trying out “wings”, fun with bubbles, and making their own kite craft to take home. 

This event will be held outdoors, but may be moved inside in the case of inclement weather.  Participants should dress appropriately for this outdoor activity and bring their own sunscreen, hat, blankets or lawn chairs, and water if needed.
