Hundreds upon hundreds of butterflies were released at several gatherings throughout the weekend to allow children to interact with the insects' natural environment.

A butterfly farm was included this year. An enclosed 20-by-20 tent, it was filled with dozens of plants the flying insects love, so visitors could experience butterflies up close and personally.
