The SoWal-sponsored, annual Flutterby Festival is returned to Rosemary Beach, Nov. 12-13, 2011, celebrating the arts and the migration of the Monarch Butterfly in SoWal. Hosted by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA), the event also featured interactive adventures by the Seaside Repertory Theatre.
Festival attendees also enjoyed live music, interactive storytelling adventures, animal encounters and an array of artists, vendors and exhibitors. The fun-filled day allows fammilies to participate in street games, face painting, hula hooping, and street and mural painting.
As part of the annual tradition, children create their own butterfly wing masterpieces to be worn for the butterfly costume parade each afternoon at 3:00 p.m. In addition, kids enjoy using their creativity to build butterfly puppets and make other crafts, including decorating a butterfly plant pot to take home and plant their very own seeds to watch grow.
