enclosure, and all the animals run freely with the public. The zoo includes a wide variety of animals, such as wallabies, llamas and exotic goats. The AG-Ventureland includes goat and cow milking, corn and bean play boxes, pony saddling and more. The exciting GASCAR races is inter-species animal racing like you’ve never seen before. Goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and other surprise animals wear racing silks as they hoof and waddle their way around, and sometimes, over the track. Finally, the Farmyard Follies is a delightful show that includes animal behavior, hilarious antics and interesting facts. New to this year’s festival are zebra and camel rides. There will be plenty of activities to keep humans and animals entertained at Auburn’s seventh annual Petpalooza festival. Petpalooza is sponsored by Green River Veterinary Hospital and Laser Surgery, Banfield Pet Hospital, Del’s Feed & Farm Supply, Reber Ranch, PetSmart and Petco.
