What People Say About
 The Butterfly Encounter
​  
    Other big fair attractions this year were a new butterfly exhibit,

The Butterfly Encounter, a screened-in butterfly exhibit, brought in about 1500 people each day of the fair.

“A lot of people,” said owner Deborah Lurie.

Three different species of butterflies, 350 total were on display, and fair-goers had the opportunity to observe and feed them nectar, at no charge. The Butterfly Encounter even gives away caterpillars to kids “so they get to see the whole transformation,” Lurie said.

This was The Butterfly Encounter’s first year at the local fair.

“We’re are come back next year. We’re loving it here,” said Lurie, from Florida, who runs the traveling business with her family. “The people are incredible. The weather is gorgeous. Everything about it.”
