FUN Monterey Butterfly Gifts




Butterfly Town USA - Pacific Grove is home to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, CA

"Butterfly Town USA"
Home to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, Pacific Grove has come to be known as "Butterfly Town USA."

Annual Butterfly Parade
Each October since 1939, Pacific Grove celebrates the arrival of the Monarch Butterflies with a welcome "Butterfly Parade."

On the first Saturday of every October, children and their teachers from the Pacific Grove School District, dress in winged costumes and parade through town to celebrate the return of the Monarch Butterflies. Fun for the whole family!

Note: The people of Pacific Grove take their Monarch Butterflies very seriously — there's even a 1939 city ordinance authorizing a $1,000 fine for "hurting a butterfly in any way."
