Discover Wind and Whimsical Fairies at Hershey Gardens in June

This June, Hershey Gardens invites the community to get caught up in its new summer wind exhibit and welcomes children to spend a magical day with flowers and fairies.

Catching the Wind Exhibit

Introducing visitors to the power of wind through pinwheels, whirligigs, wind chimes and wind sculptures, the new “Catching the Wind” special exhibit is on display June 7 through September 15. Guests can view more than 200 participant entries in the Seasonal Display Gardens. Visitors can also learn fun facts about wind as they explore the themed garden.
More than 150 pinwheels were painted by students in Derry Township School District. Other entries were crafted or donated by members of the community. The staff at Hershey Gardens crafted several wind sculptures and wind chimes, in addition to one large pinwheel made entirely out of recycled materials, for the display.
