Butterfly festival at The Shops at Willow Bend

The Shops at Willow Bend, butterflies, The Greater Plano Kiwanis Club

Attending the The Greater Plano Kiwanis Club Annual Butterfly Festival at The Shops at Willow Bend was one of the best things I did with my toddler last year. When the festival returns from May 4 to May 13 we’ll absolutely be going again.

The festival is a fully-immersive hands-on experience whereby visitors get to walk through a conservatory filled with flowering plants and observe more than 1,000 flying butterflies as well as caterpillars and chrysalises. It’s a magical experience: Butterflies flutter all around you, they land on your hands, in your hair and you can even feed them.

Entry to the conservatory is by guided tour only and tours take place every 10-30 minutes.
