The day was filled with plenty of excitement and information about domestic and exotic animals from all over the world.

Individuals were able to pet and feed some of the animals, with the giraffe being one of the most popular.

To cap off the day, families enjoyed Hopper’s Bounceland, which included several large bounce houses and an inflatable slide.
