Repticon is coming back to Chattanooga with a mixture of vendors, breeders, and educators April 28-29. This family-oriented, fun-filled event offers guests the opportunity to learn about animals not normally seen in local pet stores. Breeder-vendors are willing to teach; and, throughout the event, there will be seminars on animal-related topics by experts in the field of herpetology.
Guests can also shop for a new family pet among the hundreds of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, spiders, and small exotic animals. There will also be merchandise, cages, supplies, both live and frozen feeders, as well as advice about caring for pets. Many of the vendors allow live interactions with the pets during visits to their booth.
Free-entry raffles are held frequently during both days of the event.
The event will be held at Camp Jordan Arena in East Ridge. The doors open to the general public at 10 a.m. on Saturday, closing at 5 p.m. On Sunday, the show hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. At the door, tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and children under 5 are admitted free. VIP and advance tickets may be purchased online at http://repticon.com/repticon-chattanooga/.
