HUNTINGTON — Kids of all ages headed out to Heritage Farm Museum and Village on Monday evening for "Family Fun Night," where those who attended were able to experience all of their favorite things to do at the farm from its museums, to the petting zoo and wagon rides.

AllStar Ecology LLC demonstrated how bat research is done throughout West Virginia and talked all about these fascinating flying mammals who call Appalachia their home.

The Marshall University Physics department brought an inflatable planetarium for families to view presentations about the night sky throughout the evening. They also had an "Afterglow" for firefly viewing and catching, as well as stargazing after dark.

On Wednesday, June 12, Heritage Farm will also be hosting its weekly Funington, $5 Kids Day as part of the Cabell Huntington Convention and Visitors Bureau's Funington campaign. Sponsored by HIMG $5 Kids' Days, Funington runs every Wednesday, June through August. Visit for more information.
