The Harbor Foundation will proudly host their 9th Annual Butterfly Release on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Ford Park Exhibit Hall from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. The entire community is invited with free admission to this incredible event.
This event will feature free food and free children’s activities that are donated by local area businesses. The Harbor Foundation is currently seeking businesses to sponsor the event. It is a great way to showcase the businesses, products, and services of southeast Texas and support a positive community program. In addition to monetary sponsors, restaurants are invited to showcase their food and businesses are invited to set up a table and provide something to the children/families who attend.
For the first time ever, this event will be hosted both inside and outside the Ford Park Exhibit Hall in Beaumont, Texas. All booths will be set up inside the Exhibit Hall, and the butterfly release will be held in the grassy area behind the Exhibit hall at 1:45 p.m.
