Critters Take Over Central Park for Animals Everywhere

Animals Everywhere offered an exciting, educational and action-packed day for kids of all ages! Children were invited to learn and interact with a variety of creatures including an 8ft camel, sea creatures, and furry pocket pets. Guests also enjoyed crafts, games and delicious food from a variety of vendors!

Throughout the event, children enjoyed a pony carousel, several petting-zoo exhibits containing bunnies, puppies, farm animals, an 8ft camel and even a portable tidepool! The creatures were perfectly comfortable with the constant movement associated with the transport and setup of the tidepool as it replicated the natural turbulence of an ocean tidepool!

Along with the animal exhibits, Animals Everywhere also featured two live exotic animal shows; “Walk on the Wild Side” and “Our Big Backyard.” Reptacular Animals Corporation educated adults and children about a variety of animals including the American porcupine, the armadillo, and even a baby crocodile! Children were able to learn about the different animals as well as volunteer to touch and become a part of the show!

DJ Mel from Extreme DJ entertained the crowd with music while food and beverages were provided by Scream n’ Ice Cream Truck, Kurt’s Catering, and Tres Compas Mexican Grill Food Truck!

The event even had a rock wall and bubbleologist, courtesy of Entertaining Events. Kids practiced their climbing skills, and volunteers assisted kids with all the bubbly rainbow fun.
