Fairplex will be the center of the ever-lovin’ pet universe the weekend of Aug. 7 and 8 when the L.A. Pet Fair presents three shows – Pet Expo USA, Reptile Super Show and APEX Aquarium & Pond Expo. It’s open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
You get to enjoy all these shows for just one admission price – $12 for adults, $8 for ages 12 and younger (and you’ll get a special discount admission to the L.A. County Fair, too).
Pets that swim, fly, crawl, walk, jump or slither will be showcased. The latest pet paraphernalia, celebrity appearances, numerous drawings for products, and several adoption organizations make this show a must-see. Plenty of entertainment will also be part of the show, so bring the family (but please don’t bring your pets, they’re not allowed).
Pet Expo USA presents all things dogs, cats, equine and more in Fairplex 6. Celebrity appearances include Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss,” actors-animal advocates Linda Blair, Larry Thomas (the “Soup Nazi” from “Seinfeld”), Mackenzie Phillips Megan Blake and Max Wasa. Talented four-legged entertainers include skateboarding bulldogs, dancing dog teams, “Chopper” the Biker Dog and exotic animal shows.
Fairplex 7 will be home to APEX – The Aquarium & Pond Expo, offering fresh- and salt-water aquariums, planted aquariums, outdoor ponds, fish, coral, plants, plenty of family fun and more.
The Reptile Super Show takes over Fairplex 9 with thousands of lizards, frogs, snakes, turtles, and supplies. More than 200 vendors from all over the world will offer the largest selection of captive bred reptiles and amphibians, and experts will discuss topics such as reptile breeding (and you can watch eggs as they hatch).
