The birds are chirping, the frogs are calling and the snakes are slitherin’! And I hope you are getting out there and enjoying all the beautiful weather the DC area is finally having after our long cold winter.
Here at Reptiles Alive, we are, as usual, gearing up for our super busy season. We perform shows all year long, however, April – August are the 5 busiest months of the year here. Just about every day we will be at end of year school assemblies, summer camps, festivals and special events. In fact, our calendar is already just about booked up from now until September!
But don’t despair if you don’t already have an RA show booked for a birthday or into your school spring assembly or summer camp schedule, you can still see us at one of our (mostly FREE!) public event shows!
In MAY, Cobra Caroline will be at Mason Neck State Park where she got her start as a park ranger. This will be on SATURDAY MAY 11 at 11 & 4 pm at the incredibly fun Eagle Festival. Reptile Rachel will be at the Davis Library in Bethesda on SATURDAY MAY 18 at 11 am and the rockin’ Rockville Hometown Holidays Festival on SATURDAY MAY 25 at 1:15 and 2:30 pm.
In JUNE, our public shows really kick into high gear. JUNE 1 we’ll be at BOWIEFEST at 2 and 3:30; JUNE 7 AND 8 we’ll be at CELEBRATE FAIRFAX FESTIVAL at 6:30 pm on the 7th and 5 pm on the 8th. We will also be presenting at lots libraries in central Virginia and Montgomery Co MD.
Oh man, JULY, is the height of our busy season! A highlight is Cobra Caroline’s annual 4th of July performances in Sterling at the Claude Moore Park 4th of July Festival. Reptile Rachel will once again perform at the Lubber Run Amphitheater in Arlington on Sunday JULY 7 at 11 am. And, we will be at too many libraries to list here throughout DC, MD, and VA.
In AUGUST we are still going full speed ahead with public library shows in DC, Central VA, and Montgomery Co. MD.
Finally in SEPTEMBER, we have a free public show at the RIO in Gaithersburg on Wednesday September 4 at 10:30.
And keep yourself ready for OCTOBER when we are already booked for Fall for Fairfax on Sunday October 6 and Petoberfest on Saturday October 19.
