Nothing to do on September 26 and 27???
Check out the 9th Annual Butterfly Festival and Plant Sale at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, 2021 N. Kinney Road. “There are a lot of fun activities for the entire family. Spend the day at the Museum learning about these ‘jewels of the air’. There will be live butterflies and caterpillars, a plant sale, children’s activities and gardening classes happening throughout the day.”
The Plant Sale starts at 7:30 a.m. both days, followed by the activities till 3 p.m.–such as Butterfly Crafts, Face Painting, Butterfly Antennae, Live caterpillars and chrysalids, Microscopes, Running Wild (live animal presentations), Live and (sort of) on the Loose (venomous reptiles), Butterfly Gardening Class.
I can’t believe this is the 9th annual festival, as I must have missed the first eight. I’ve been to see the butterflies at the Tucson Botanical Garden, but this festival sounds like a lot of fun for the kids.
