Montreal Is Hosting A "Butterfly Festival" At Jardin Botanique

For the past 8 years, the Jardin Botanique de Montreal has been organizing a magical event called: Papillons en Liberté.

For a limited time, the the Grande Serre room in the Botanical Gardens will be packed with thousands upon thousands of butterflies, 20,000 to be exact.

Over the course of the entire event, the butterflies will be released 100 at a time to ensure the room contains at least 2,000 butterflies of 50 different species at any given time. (I wonder how many butterflies you can accidentally step on before they kick you out.)
