Celebrate the migration of the monarch butterfly from Canada to Mexico, by way of Grapevine, at the 20th Annual Butterfly Flutterby. This free family-friendly event takes place from 10 am-2 pm and includes a parade, costume contest, live butterfly releases, and more fun activities.

The day starts with the Butterfly Parade where everyone, including the pets, is invited to wear their favorite butterfly costume. The parade route starts at East Wall and Jenkins Streets (across from Grapevine City Hall) and ends at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens at Heritage Park.

Live butterfly releases will occur at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens at 10:55 am, 11:55 am, and 12:35 pm. Additional activities, including Migration Station and a Butterfly Exhibit, will take place at the Botanical Gardens as well.

The “Transition to Beauty” Butterfly Sculpture will be dedicated to the Grapevine Botanical Gardens, honoring Paula and C. Shane Wilbanks for their vision for the Botanical Gardens. Designed by local artist and Grapevine Foundry owner Linda Lewis, this Grapevine Public Art Trail addition is composed of a flutter of butterflies in different sizes, shapes and colors swirling into a pinnacle at 30 feet high, symbolizing the unfolding of beauty into the new life of grace.  This sculpture will be placed in the front lawn area nestled in the trees. The colors will stand out as to either give the visitor a view of the butterflies overhead or the cascade of color advancing toward the sky. The Transition to Beauty Butterfly Sculpture will be dedicated at 11:30 am.
