The event runs from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. at Tanglebank Gardens, 29985 Downes Rd.
The public is invited to purchase a Painted Lady butterfly – one of many species that are native to the area – and release it in memory of a loved one.
All butterflies must be pre-ordered online at abbotsfordhospice.org/butterfly. The cost is $25 per butterfly.
Registration begins at 11 a.m., with the release at noon. Face painting and children’s activities are also included.
