A free one-day bird festival held the third weekend of August when ruby-throated hummingbirds can be seen in large numbers as they stop in Henderson, Minnesota, at feeders and nectar producing plants on their southward journey to Mexico and Central America, where they spend the winter. The festival promotes the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of these amazing little birds. It offers opportunities to learn how to attract them, keep them happy and much more. A licensed hummingbird bander catches and bands birds, allowing you to see them up close and learn about hummingbird research. The Hurrah includes: a garden tour, speakers, book signing sessions, children’s activities, and a Hummingbird Mall with food, art, craft, specialty, and information vendors.
