The Dade City Monarch Butterfly Festival celebrated a winged creature that is perhaps North America’s best-known butterfly.
The Dade City Garden Club and Dade City Youth Council teamed up to present the festivities, which took place on Oct. 23, at Hibiscus Park in Dade City.
Those wishing to do a little shopping could choose from native plants, handcrafted jewelry, pottery and other items.
There were educational displays and presentations on monarch butterflies, raffles and plenty of hands-on activities for the kids.
Dade City was proclaimed a “Monarch City USA” back in 2019. The designation refers to the city’s efforts to maintain the survival of monarch butterflies.
