Summer’s approaching and for those of us who don’t have kids (me, me, me) it means parties in the park, fun in the sun and probably a little too many late nights at the beer garden. For those of you who DO have kids, chances are your summer is more about insect repellent, popsicle stain removal and trying to figure out the most productive way to spend those precious hours school once occupied. Well good news for you!

Animal Planet and their partners have teamed up to create the Animal Planet Expo — a free, fun-filled festival for all ages that even your cats and dogs will enjoy. 

Some of the activities you’ll find at the expo include: an insect/bug house, a tent for animal face painting, an inflatable “Happy Gator” obstacle course, and various other family friendly afternoon treats.  In some cities you’ll also have the chance to take an eco-bike ride, get an eco-photo and learn about their all-new, all-Green network, Planet Green!

The expo is hitting cities all across the country so make sure you visit the Animal Planet website for details.  Oh and I’ll say it again parents…it’s totally free!!!!! Yeah, so grab those ankle biters and get thee to the expo.

    Thanks so much for listing this, with the link for tour dates. My kids are beyond biting ankles (their wrath is demonstrated in far more insidious ways now), but they will definitely love this outing. And it’s in a part of Portland we rarely visit, so yay!
