GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) — It’s that time of year when hummingbirds begin to move south, and the Friends of Land Between the Lake is hosting its annual Hummingbird Festival this weekend.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Woodlands Nature Station. Programs include hummingbird banding and release demonstrations, seminars on attracting the birds and others, photo contest winners, crafts and games for children and other attractions.

Food options at the site are limited, but visitors can bring a picnic lunch if desired, the organization said.

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area has over 170,000 acres (68,797 hectares) of forests, wetlands, and open lands in western Kentucky and Tennessee.
