$5 for Admission for a Child or Adult to ReptileFest 2012, April 14th or 15th

Baby and Kids

Are your kiddos intoxicated with the exotic and colorful reptiles on the discovery channel? How many times have they tried to put a leash on a garter snake? These creatures might be creepy crawly to some, but there's no denying they are pretty darn cool too. Gather your family and give your young explorer a day full of fun during RepitileFest 2012, on April 14 and 15 at the University of Illinois, Chicago!

Get ready for the coolest collection of critters you've ever seen! ReptileFest is completely interactive and boast 40,000 square feet of hands-on attractions:

  • There's an indoor pond teeming with live alligators of all sizes.
  • There are snakes so small you'll hold them in one hand and others so big they require about 20 hands.
  • Check out frogs so colorfully exotic they seem unreal.

You'll see, touch, and taste (just kidding, Mom!) hundreds of other reptiles and amphibians. This is a once in a lifetime event that will entertain and educate the entire family (there's no limit to the number of vouchers you can purchase, and they are good for both parents and kids). Give your kids a day they'll never forget at ReptileFest!

Parking is a University lot located on Roosevelt across the street from the front of the P.E. building.

My daughter Sophie rode a huge turtle at this event last year and my son Alex held a live croc (with a little help of course). The entire day was amazing fun!
