Have you had or do you now have an exotic pet? I didn't know guinea pigs and hedgehogs were considered exotic; I was thinking more along the lines of lizards, monkeys, maybe a raccoon thrown in. An event is coming up in Nashville that has all of these critters and more. 

The Nashville Exotic Pet Expo has been going strong for 32 years (!!!). For their fall expo, to be held at the Nashville Fairgrounds, they will have 85,000 square feet of space for all kinds of exotic animals. The expo is a fundraiser for the Nashville Exotic Pet Club.

This expo isn't just for gazing and handling pets, you can also adopt, learn more about them, how to care for them and get set up with supplies for your exotic pet.

It just so happens this fall's expo will be the weekend before Fall Break, October 5th, and 6th. Even better, admission is only two dollars. VIP tickets for both days and early entry into the expo are ten dollars. Presale for VIP will be 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Saturday expo hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
