Beautiful Butterflies!

Visit our expanded Texas Native Butterfly Tent featuring over 250 native Texas butterflies and a display of the Monarch butterfly metamorphosis- from egg to larva to chrysalis to adult. Learn why wildflowers need butterflies and which flowers you can plant to attract butterflies to your own backyard! Kids can actually enter the butterfly tent and observe butterflies as they feed on nectar from milkweed, pentas, lantana and exotic fruit. See how many butterflies species you can identify and take home your very own milkweed seed to plant. The Monarchs need our help! Please go to www.saveourmonarchs.org Facebook page to see how Wildflower! kids can help save the Monarch butterfly.

WF! Kids Safety Tag Program

Available at the Festival Gateways, the WF! Kids Safety Tag Program gives parents the opportunity to write down their phone number on a provided wristband and place it on their child to wear throughout the day. This allows staff and security personnel to reunite a child separated from his or her parents in a fast and reliable way. We also strongly recommend that parents take a photo of your child on the day of the Festival to ensure that an accurate description can be provided to our staff in the event that you get separated from them.

Cool down at the Plaza Fountain Show

Even the fountain at Galatyn Plaza moves to it’s own beat! Stop by and enjoy a cooling experience at the Plaza Fountain Show throughout the three day Festival. It surely is the perfect place to escape the Texas heat during the day, and to see one of the many features of Wildflower! at night.
