Butler area butterfly release to fill the sky with color

July 5, 2018 by  

Lake Arthur will be the site for a special summer event, and residents of Butler are welcome to join in the high flying fun of the occasion.

The Regatta at Lake Arthur will be marking its 20th year, and to add an even more festive touch to the celebration and pay tribute to those who have worked to make the event special for the past two decades, monarch butterflies will be released. These colorful insects will be the Western Pennsylvania monarchs that are found in the area.

On the day of the event, those who pre-order a butterfly can head to the Regatta Information tent to pick theirs up. It will be contained in an envelope that is small but still large enough for the insert to be comfortable. At 6:00 pm, the butterflies will be released all at once, with a goal of filling the sky with life and color in a living tribute to the organizers and other supporters of the occasion.

The butterflies can be ordered ahead of time by anyone who would like to be included. Stationery printers will be able to supply an occasion like this with envelopes that have been printed with the event’s logo or any other graphics its planners wish.

This high-flying celebration will be taking place on August 5. The native butterflies that will be released can be preordered for $10 each.
