Thomasville -  On Friday, crews began setting up tents and tables for art and wildlife displays at the cultural center in Thomasville.  Some children and adults even got some first hand exposure to wildlife through butterflies.

Dan Greathouse says, "People have butterflies around them. A lot of time they don't notice them, they're too busy, they are thinking of their next activity. It brings them into close contact, and butterflies are not afraid of people."

The festival kicks off Saturday morning at 10. There will be a dog show, iron chef competition, and art exhibits. The festival lasts through Sunday.
