2019 Butterfly Release
The City of Breezy Point is hosting it's annual Butterfly Release at the Lovely Pelican Woods Cemetery. This outdoor event, similar to those held in past years, is scheduled for a Saturday to accommodate individuals and families who live at a distance.
We hope you will come early and enjoy viewing the beautiful grounds, including the All Veterans Memorial and Columbarium. Beginning at 10:30 a.m., visitors can enjoy light refreshments, visit with other attendees, and view the gardens. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions. All children present will be invited to participate in a parade to the wildflower meadow as a prelude to the actual release. All 200 monarch butterflies will be released at the same time.
