JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Young and old enjoy learning about nature at the 7th Annual Monarch Festival held at Hidden Hill Nursery in Jeffersonville.
The event is organized by the Arts Council of Southern Indiana and celebrates the monarch butterfly, the arts, and the community. It also allows people to actually get up close with the beautiful insects.
Hidden Hill owner Bob Hill says, "Butterflies are free, as the saying goes, and we keep them in a tent for a couple days and then the kids can go in there, touch them and feel them and then we bring them out and let them go and they complete their mission."
A couple thousand people came out this weekend to enjoy the experience before releasing the butterflies. Artwork and various plants were also for sale.
