The fifth an­nual Catherine’s “But­ter­fly Party” will fea­ture pet adop­tion and var­i­ous an­i­mal-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties. It will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Satur­day at Fair­field Hills Cam­pus.

The Catherine Vi­o­let Hub­bard An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary hosts the free fes­ti­val in honor of Catherine Hub­bard, who was killed dur­ing the Sandy Hook tragedy. The event ben­e­fits the an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary and falls on what would have been Hub­bard’s 13th birth­day.

At least 28 an­i­mal res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tions will pro­vide more than 100 pets up for adop­tion. Live wildlife demon­stra­tions, pet-re­lated ven­dors, lo­cal ar­ti­sans, food trucks, live mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment and end­less ac­tiv­i­ties for kids will also be of­fered.

Pet adop­tion will be of­fered. At last year’s event more than 6,000 peo­ple at­tended and more than 70 an­i­mals found homes.
