Event With Animals Makes Children Happy!

Kids in the Park hosted two sold out “Into the Jungle” parties at the Village Theatre on Saturday, March 25th. Over 180 children and parents purchased tickets to the second annual event.

The children were thrilled to see and pet many exotic animals. The show featured a huge albino boa constrictor, chinchillas, a prairie dog, bearded dragons, a baby crocodile, a scorpion and many more interesting animals that were exciting to see up close. Crafts and snacks, as well as giveaways from Gold Sponsor, Joyce Styne of Laffey International, made the event even more memorable.

Mayor Koblenz said “These events are fun-filled for everyone who attended. I am appreciative to the Kids in the Park Committee for making the wonderful, spirited event happen. It keeps our community spirit strong.”
