Escape the cold visiting Morpho Mardi Gras: Bugs, Butterflies and Beads! Bring your Krewe to the carnival during the months of February and March. Join the party at out Bug Parade, make a masquerade mask, and immerse yourself in a sea of blue as the Butterfly House floods the tropical conservatory with thousands of Blue Morpho Butterflies. With the sounds of jazz in the air, inaugurate the season with these and other majestic creatures. This year, we are featuring a larger-than-life glass Blue Morpho sculpture, by Craig Mitchell Smith.
