Animal Antics at America’s Family Pet Expo
Hundreds of local Orange County families came out to the OC Fair & Events Center for America’s Family Pet Expo over the weekend. The weekend event featured animals, activities, shows and pet adoptions. We started our weekend by visiting the Pet Expo of Friday after school, and the children were immediately in animal heaven from the moment that they walked into the gates.
Our first stop at the Pet Expo was the wienerdog races. The fastest wiener dogs in town raced for the championship title. The kids couldn’t resist the cuteness of the dogs, and they were all champions in our eyes.
Then it was time for some exploring. There were hundreds of animals available for adoption. Everything from large to small breeds. It was the perfect place to find the pet that your family has always been dreaming of adopting. Not only were pets available for adoption but also dog breed groups were there to help educate families on the different types of breeds. This was a valuable resource for my family as we were able to learn about the different breeds to decided what our next family pet is going to be.
Our favorite part of the Pet Expo was the Splashing Dogs. My kids were screaming and cheered as dogs took giant leaps into a large swimming pool. It was a great sight to see the animals splashing in the water and having fun.
There was so much to see, learn and do at the Pet Expo this year. It boasted a full-day of fun for my family and the hundreds of other families who came to the event this past weekend. Mark the calendar now for the return of the Pet Expo next year. It is guaranteed to be an event that your family is not going to want to miss.
