Rocky Fork Fireflies

Those interested in seeing the synchronous fireflies at Rocky Fork State Park will be able to participate in the lottery beginning on May 6 at 8 a.m. 

A select few lottery winners will have the opportunity to see fireflies light up Lamar Alexander Rocky Fork State Park in two distinct ways.

During their mating ritual, synchronous fireflies flash synchronized patterns to attract a partner, while blue ghost fireflies emit a bright blue light that can last for up to a minute.
