Happy New Year! The Fairplex family extends best wishes for a prosperous and healthy year to all our shows and guests.
It’s the start of a new year and we’re kicking it off in style with the Reptile Super Show this weekend. If it slithers or has scales, it will be here Saturday and Sunday. The Reptile Super Show is the world’s largest reptile show and breeders’ expo, according to organizer Ramy Guirguis. The show offers thousands of lizards, snakes, turtles, frogs and insects, plus all the supplies and accessories on sale at super low prices.
Besides having some amazing animals and products for sale, the show will feature several reptile-dedicated organizations on-site to promote reptile health, education and overall quality husbandry. So, it’s not just a place to purchase a new pet but learn how to care for them as well. Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for children. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. All the fun is in Fairplex 9.
The Fairplex Marketing & Communications Department has two of its own bearded dragons – Kathy and Brutus (formerly known as Heather, until we discovered he didn’t like being called Heather) – and we can attest to what great pets they make. So, if you are considering a pet reptile or amphibian or insect, stop by this weekend.
