Nowhere else in town can you see lions, tigers, alligators, crocodiles, zebras, emus, wallabies, lemurs, giant tortoises, big snakes, and tons of other cool animals as the Science Spectrum literally turns into a Zoo for four days. Awesome and amazing animal acts, as well as the extremely popular petting zoo, pony rides and cow milking demonstrations, along with many of other animals on display continue to make this event a hit for the whole family! Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Close Encounters Lion & Tiger Show and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment.
