The annual pilgrimage of Monarch butterflies to Mexico runs right through this north Texas city.

In honor of the trip, Grapevine honors the colorful species each year with a festival.

On Saturday, the 17th Annual Butterfly Flutterby drew hundreds of nature lovers.

The day begins with a butterfly costume parade. The parade ended at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens on Ball Street where the area was filled with children and even pets wearing butterfly costumes.

After the parade, highlights at the botanical gardens included butterfly exhibits and opportunities to participate in butterfly arts and crafts.

But the feature of the day was live butterfly releases occurring throughout the event.

Among those celebrating the monarch butterfly migration were Audrey Lake, a second-grader at Cannon Elementary in Grapevine.

Audrey, who was carrying a stuffed bear with butterfly wings, said she enjoyed “catching the butterflies and letting them go.”

“Black and orange are my favorite colors,” the 7-year-old said.
