Butterflies rest on a flower during the Kiwanis Butterfly Festival at Town East Mall in Mesquite on Saturday, May 15, 2004. The event benefits Children's Miracle Network and the Kiwanis Children's Charities.
These were the only kind of butterflies left in the tent after a few days of tromping children. The Kiwani-in-charge said they lost hundreds the first day because children stepped before looking. Possibly it's best to run a string through pieces of watermelon and hang them at 3-year-old eye level by the flowers rather than placing the fruit on the ground. Just a thought.
