Joy the Butterfly

Hi!  I’m Joy, and I'm proud to be the butterfly mascot for Morgan's Wonderland, where everyone can "spread their wings and soar to new heights" of fun with family and friends.

Since I’m a butterfly, I don’t talk, but I love to dance and make people smile.  Even more I love having my picture taken.  So come and see me at Morgan’s Wonderland!
