Pacific Grove Culture
Butterfly Parade and Bazaar
Every October, the City of Pacific Grove welcomes back the Monarch Butterflies.
The elementary school students of Pacific Grove participate in the Butterfly Parade - with each grade dressing in different costumes. The honor of dressing as a Monarch Butterfly goes to our kindergartners.
The Parade begins at Robert Down Elementary on Pine Street, winds through downtown Pacific Grove on Lighthouse Avenue and returns to Robert Down.
The PTA's for both Forest Grove and Robert Down host a Butterfly Bazaar - an afternoon of games, food and laughter for all to enjoy. A highlight of the Butterfly Bazaar are all the homemade goodies for the Bake Sale and the Cake Walk.
It is a California not-for-profit community foundation that raises money to support the students, staff and classrooms of the Pacific Grove Unified School District.
PG P.R.I.D.E. has donated more than $1,000,000 for learning materials, musical instruments, technology, class trips and camps, art supplies, writers- and poets-in-residence, science equipment, stage productions, athletics, and improvement of facilities.
Some of PG Pride's main events are Walk with PRIDE (September-pledge and walk) and The Great Taste of P.G. in March (A Wine and Food event - for 21+ adults only).
