Calling all birdbrains!
Parrot Expo is Long Island’s only major exotic bird event that comes around just once a year.
This year’s expo includes a pirate ‘invasion’ by Ye Pyrate Brotherhood, three exotic animals and bird shows by Nature Nick, two educational workshops by certified animal behavior consultant Concetta Ferragamo, a ‘Meet the Vet’ section where bird owners can acquaint themselves with avian veterinarians, a huge vendor room with everything parrot related, face painting and photo opportunities. Each attendee will receive a free, full color expo journal and resource guide.
The education center affords an opportunity to meet parrots in person, network with other pet bird lovers and inquire about the Parrot Society’s avian adoption referral service. It’s an all-day extravaganza for exotic bird lovers. Dress like a pirate and you may win a prize! (Adult and under 16 categories)
The Parrot Expo will take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Freeport Recreation Center, 130 E Merrick Rd., Freeport NY.
All-access admission (includes Nature Nick) costs $10 for adults, $5 for ages 60+, $3 for kids under 12, and kids under 2 are free. To see Nature Nick only, tickets are $5.
