Yelm exhibitor shares the spotlight at America’s Family Pet Expo, Nov 3-4 at the Puyallup Fair and Events Center

From the Press Release:
The “go-to” event for family fun, education and “everything pet”

Puyallup–Celebrating pets of all varieties, America’s Family Pet Expo Washington (www.petexpowa.org), opens next weekend at the Puyallup Fair and Events Center, November 3-4.

With 1,000 both small and large animals, the Expo is the Northwest’s largest pet-focused event with action-packed feature attractions, a big line-up of exhibitors, learning opportunities, contests and more. It’s also a one-stop source of information on the latest trends in pet care and new products from manufacturers and retailers.

Yelm businesses and organizations participating in this “everything pet” event include Critters On Things.

Feathered, furry (and not so furry) animals splash and strut their stuff in multiple demonstration areas, including Splash Dogs, sponsored by NutriSource, as high-flying canines make waves with their jumping skills; Jump! The Ultimate Dog Show, sponsored by The IAMS Company, showcasing action-packed stunts; the Adoption Dog Makeovers and Fashion Show; FeatherDance – Dancing with Friesians; the Avian Actors of Hollywood, and many more.

Reptilian pets continue to grow in popularity and expert Corbin Maxey shares information about these fascinating animals. Emphasizing education and responsible pet ownership for over a decade, the twenty-two-year-old has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and “The Today Show.”

“Finned friends” are spotlighted at the all-new Aquatic Experience, offering through-the-glass underwater views of saltwater and freshwater fish and plants from around the world.

Children ages 5-16 are invited to participate in the Kid’s Aquarium Contest, with the colorful entries on display in the ShowPlex during the two-day Expo. This unique learning opportunity provides participants with a 10-gallon heated aquarium kit to take home–with the children adding their own fish and unique decorations. For more information, visit
