The live butterflies are cooled to keep them calm and inactive prior to the event and will be warmed and awakened for their release. Participants will have the opportunity to write messages on their balloons. Then the participants will simultaneously release their balloons. An ice cream social will follow the release. The balloons and butterflies are provided free of charge by the Children's Miracle Network.
