The 4th annual Critter Carnival (formerly Furry Friends Festival) will be held at Southern Community Park in Chapel Hill, NC from 10am to 2pm to raise money and awareness for numerous local animal rescue and rehabilitation charities.
Many animals will be at the festival for people to meet, including owls, turtles, fawns, kittens, possums, raptors, snakes, birds of prey, adoptable puppies & dogs and much more.
Circus artists such as hula hoopers and stilt walkers will exhibit their amazing skills. There will be a Maple View Ice Cream truck, a lemonade stand, animal-related vendors, arts & crafts vendors, a digital photo booth with costumes, and an online silent auction with lots of great items.
“We’re excited that Critter Carnival keeps growing and now includes more charities and animals than ever,” says festival producer Paul Kerr. “We’re honored to help spread awareness of the important work these groups are doing.” Admission is free. More information is available at CritterCarnival.org.
