Calling all bug and reptile lovers of all ages.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see these bizarre, beautiful and fascinating creatures up close and personal.

Stuart Brown of The Bug Guys is back for his fifth year at the Greater Vernon Museum & Archives, entertaining the enthused and the squeamish onlookers with his creepy crawlies.

“We are thrilled to once again host The Buys Guys for two separate shows,” said Denise Marsh, marketing and communications coordinator for the museum.

The first show is about bugs and takes place July 19 from 10 a.m. to noon; the second show on reptiles will be held Aug. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.

As space is limited and these shows have proven very popular, Marsh encourages those interested to purchase their tickets early. Tickets are $3 per person, available at the museum.

The Greater Vernon Museum & Archives is at 3009-32nd Ave. and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
