Animal Planet Expo at Centennial Park

John Misita and his high-flying Frisbee dog perform at the expo.

The Animal Planet Expo came to Centennial Park this weekend, as one of their thirteen stops this summer around the country. There were Frisbee dog shows, trivia games, and the popular Discovery Kids' Endurance Experience, where kids got to feel the exhilarating fun of the Discovery Kids' Channel's show Endurance.

The expo also included a theater where visitors came face-to-face with a python, alligator, fox, porcupine, or lemur. Visitors were able to meet Dave and Molly from Animal Planet's Backyard Habitat. As part of this wonderful opportunity for Howard County's families and pets, Comcast will also be making a $1000 donation to the Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center.
