Ripley’s Wild and Weird Halloween Extravaganza
Things are always strange at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in St. Augustine. Come October 26, they will also be wild, furry, and hilariously fun. And it’s all for a good cause. The famous St. Augustine Odditorium is hosting Ripley’s Wild and Weird Halloween Extravaganza designed to entertain, educate, and find new BFFs (Best Furry Friends) for some of the region’s homeless pets.
Family and pet-friendly activities include:
* 11:00am – 1:00pm — Dusty Crum Meet and Greet – a host of not-so-scary events and exhibitions. Crum is an Everglades activist and star of the television show, Guardians of the Glades. He’ll share his passion for pythons and his calling to save the delicate Everglades ecosystem from destruction by the invasive pythons.
* 11:15am — Ripley’s Pet Parade & Talent Show. Honors include “Most Original Costume,” “Best Group Costume,” Scariest Costume,” and “Best St. Augustine Costume”. Talent categories include “Weirdest,” “Most Original,” and “Best Overall.”
* 12:30pm — Dusty Crum Stage Show
Halloween Fun will include kid-friendly activities, prizes, educational opportunities, a showing of the movie Frankenweenie and of course Trunk or Treat.
