Ren Fest Protest
at 12:00 pm
2018-09-01 12:00:00
Join us to protest the exotic animal rides at the Renaissance Festival. Meet us at the Highway 169 entrance at 3525 145th Street from noon to 2:00 pm to help raise awareness about the unethical animal attractions at the Ren Fest and encourage people attending to skip the animal rides - and instead enjoy the activities that don't hurt animals. In addition to elephant rides, the Ren Fest is selling llama and camel rides. They're also adding an "Exotic Petting Zoo" this year where people can hug a kangaroo, pet an African Porcupine, and feed a grape to a Ringtail Lemur. While people may jump at the opportunity to get close to animals by buying exotic animal rides at fairs and fests, they probably wouldn't if they knew about the suffering the animals endure being treated as amusement park attractions.
