I just wanted to let you know about a great event coming to the area this weekend that is a great place to take the family. America’s Family Pet Expo is coming to the Puyallup Fair & Events Center Friday, July 8th – Sunday, July 10th. It's a place where you and your kids can go and learn more about the wonderful world of pets. Highlights include:
• Educational displays
• Pet specialists
• Animal interaction
• A Kid’s Aquarium Contest
Attendees will also have the chance to visit with dogs, cats, reptiles, birds, fish, llamas, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits, turtles, horses, and a variety of other animals. It’s a great opportunity for children to learn more about pets and responsibility, and have lots of fun in the process!
Another great educational opportunity that will be available at America’s Family Pet Expo is “The Kid's Aquarium Contest,” a captivating learning program designed to teach children about the environment, stimulate their minds, ignite their creativity and warm their hearts through the rewards of pet care.
Children from the ages 5 to16 are eligible to participate and will be challenged to design a fish aquarium that reflects their personality or showcases their favorite hobby. Each child who enters the contest will receive a ten gallon aquarium kit complete with a filter, lighting, heater, thermometer, and net. The cost to enter this contest is $5.00.
Once the children arrive, the America’s Family Pet Expo team members will assist them as they prepare a personalized habitat for their fish. Aquatic experts will explain the basic care guidelines and empower each child to become a responsible pet owner. The kids will not only gain a deeper understanding of aquatic care, but will also learn the importance of a balanced ecosystem by understanding what factors are essential for a healthy fish environment.
