Oak Grove Butterfly Festival set for September 3rd

Oak Grove Tourism has announced that the award-winning Butterfly Festival will take place the first Saturday in September this year.

According to a news release, it will be from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, September 3 and it happens on the War Memorial Walking Trail on Walter Garrett Lane in Oak Grove.  This will be the 13th year for the event that is free and educational—there will be food trucks on site, along with the Space Adventures Thrill Show, face painting, bubble zones, arts and crafts, balloon artists and more.

Visitors will be able to interact with live butterflies in the Butterfly House, and see live cocoons, caterpillars and butterflies. There will be a live release of 1,800 butterflies at 4 p.m.—the butterflies won’t stick around for long, as they begin their hundreds of miles migration to Mexico.
