FREE FAMILY FESTIVAL AND SUPER PET ADOPTION EVENT
In a touching tribute to the life and legacy of a first-grader lost in the Sandy Hook tragedy, the Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation will host its third annual Catherine’s Butterfly Party on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 12-4pm at Fairfield Hills Campus in Newtown.
Catherine’s Butterfly Party is a FREE family festival and pet adoption event that draws thousands of people every year. Featuring fun activities for adults and kids alike, this open event includes face painting, games, crafts, vendors, food trucks and live entertainment. Highlights include nature inspired educational exhibits such as Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory, Backyard Bees “Bee Kind”, Animal Embassy, The Exceptional Pet dog training demonstrations, Audubon Bent of the River, CT State Trooper K-9 demonstration, and Horizon Wings.
In addition, eighteen animal rescue agencies including ASPCA, North Shore Animal League America, DAWS, Gimme Shelter, BeFreegle, CT Humane Society, Adopt-A-Dog, CT Parrot Rescue, House Rabbit, ARF Mobile, Baybrook Farm & Rescue, Rowanwood Farm and many more will be on hand with their adoptable animals.
Catherine Violet Hubbard had a natural ability to connect with and care for animals. She loved being in their presence and would whisper to them, “Tell all your friends I am kind.” Every year, Catherine asked for a birthday party that would bring all of her favorite creatures together - Catherine’s Butterfly Party is that wish fulfilled.
