The 26th Annual Monarch Butterfly Festival was held at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, October 25.

About 3,000 visitors enjoyed the activities which celebrated the annual migration of the monarchs as they make their way to a winter home in Mexico. Monarch butterflies are captured and tagged to assist researchers in their migration patterns.

Other activities included educational exhibits, children’s crafts, wagon tours, a photo booth, hot dogs, music and a visit by the Blue Goose.
