The third annual Wing-Ding, a festival of all things batty, is on at Oklahoma’s Alabaster Caverns State Park this weekend, April 10th and 11th.

The free event, which features games, activities, exhibits, programs and discussions based on those small flying mammals, takes place in and around the Alabaster Caverns’ Clubhouse Shelter.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see live bats up close, listen for their echolocation calls as they feed as well as play a detective to search for bats in their daytime roosts and at the cavern entrance.

Each day the festivities begin at 9:00 am and continue until well after dark.

Home to over 6,000 bats at last count, Alabaster Caverns largest natural gypsum cave in the world that is open to the public and the only gypsum show cave in the United States.
