The Reptile Man is always a popular draw for the kids

On Saturday, September 8, 2018 the city of Lake Forest Park held its second annual "Picnic In The Park" at Animal Acres park on Brookside Blvd. 

It ran all day - from 9:00am until 4:00pm.

There were many things for families and little children in particular, to do.

There was the number 1 kid magnet "The Reptile Man" With a King Cobra, Burmese Python and even a young Alligator.

How many kids does it take to hold a corn snake?

There was coloring for the younger kids when they wanted a change from snake handling.

A Petting Zoo had sheep and small alpacas.

Shoreline LFP Senior Center was represented, with information, shirts, and friendly faces.

Sweet Mama Brown's BBQ Sauces were for sale next to her Hot Dog stand.

There were Food Trucks.                                                             

Bounce Houses had lines of little kids waiting for entry.

The weather was cloudy but warm and there were large groups of visitors at many of the attractions.  A fun time was had by all!
