Madison Area Herpetological Society

Great Lakes Pet Expo!

We gathered up at 6am to head to Milwaukee.  MAHS President – Ryan McVeigh, Event Coordinator – Dawn Zimmerman, and Vice President – Rebecca Wyman packed into an SUV and nervously headed to The State Fair Grounds to set up for the first big show of the year.  Within the show there was an entire area left for Reptiles.  We set up our booth and got ready as the crowds flooded in.  This was the largest show in the Pet Expo’s history, having over 10,000 people, and at one point, almost being shut down by the fire marshal due to being over capacity!  We reached a HUGE amount of people and overall had a very busy, frantic, but very exciting, fun day.
