    As the beautiful Monarch butterflies make their way to the Gulf Coast this fall, the Flutterby Children’s Art Festival flitters into the beautiful town of Rosemary Beach Novermber 8 and 9. It's a SoWal fall tradition where children and families celebrate among the monarchs and enjoy a weekend-long festival of fabulously fun actvities on East Long Green in Rosemary Beach, Florida from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m (Sat & Sun!).

    As part of the annual tradition, children create their own butterfly wing masterpieces to wear in the butterfly costume parade each afternoon at 3:45pm.

    Kids will also enjoy using their creativity to build other butterfly crafts. Master Gardener Snookie Parish will be on hand teaching children the art and science of building their own butterfly garden.

    This year’s festival will include a local “celebrity” dunking booth, Imagine Faces face-painting booth, a science area, hot dogs by Dog Man Du, live music, numerous children’s activities and a chance to win exciting raffle prizes.

    New this year, festival-goers wanting to experience Flutterby in groups may reserve tables with seating for up to 10 people. At $50 per table, per hour, this offers the perfect space for painting butterfly wings with friends, group gatherings, playdates, parties and picnic dining. Reservations may be made in advance by emailing jennifersmith@culturalartsalliance.com.
