Miss Last Week’s Reptile Expo? Don’t Worry, It’s Returning to NY!
You may have missed the reptile expo this past weekend, but don't fret! You'll still be able to see and learn about some adorably scaly friends since they're coming back to the area, so mark your calendars!
Now, I know some of you might be a little creeped about by reptiles, but once you learn all about these animals, you'll realize they're nothing to be afraid of. According to their Facebook event page, the expo has 82,000 sq. ft. of 180+ vendors selling enclosures, supplies, and artwork, a hands-on learning exhibit with professional zoologists and other experts, and a shopping center for exotic pets such as reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, and invertebrates. There is also a family fun area as well as food and ice cream available!
The Capital District Reptile Expo will be returning to the area on Sunday, September 17th from 10am-4pm. It will take place at the Albany Capital Center at 55 Eagle Street Albany, NY 12207, and tickets are available at the door as well as presale online.
