NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - A festival is being held in Newtown to raise money for an animal sanctuary that is being built to honor the memory of a 6-year-old Sandy Hook School shooting victim.

The 5th annual Catherine’s Butterfly Party runs Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. on the Fairfield Hills Campus in Newtown.

The event will include children’s activities, wildlife demonstrations, food trucks, music, and pet adoptions. It is hosted by the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary.

The 34-acre sanctuary is being built to honor Hubbard, who was among 26 people killed inside the Sandy Hook School in December, 2012.

It is being designed to provide rescue and support services for companion animals, farm animal refuge, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, and educational programming.
