Help us capture the creepy crawlers of DuPont!

Starting on June 15th (National Bug Day) and running all summer long, bring your hand-painted rocks (to look like bugs) to the DuPont Historical Museum to add to our outdoor bug collection!

Sign in at the museum to drop off your rock bug and receive a chocolate bug!

Creepy Crawlers

Teen League Cookie

The City of DuPont Teen League will be selling ice-cold milk & Metropolitan Market chocolate chip cookies at the July 29th Concert in the Park featuring “Buddy, Ritchie, & the Bopper” for $5!

Ooey, gooey, crunchy, and sweet, it’s the cookie of your dreams. The perfect balance of crispy exterior and melt-in-your-mouth goodness, they are packed with both semisweet and bittersweet Callebaut Belgian-style chocolate and crunchy, toasted walnuts. You will never look at a chocolate chip cookie the same.....

Look for the yellow Parks & Recreation tent while supplies last!
