Lowry Park Zoo - Creatures Of The Night

You will love this and so will your kids. You can visit scare zones, or encounter animals, or maybe dance the night away at a ghoulish party. Lowry Park says no horror or gore, just startles and scares.

Asia, Africa, and Primate worlds are now illuminated for night viewing. You’ll see animals lurking till 10pm., or shudder at the creepy, crawlies at the eerie canal. You can stop by Wolf Haven Village to scout for passing werewolves; or the Slither Swamp to check out the reptiles (don’t hang around too long); and for the littlest ones in the family, there’s a fall harvest with friendly farm animals.

Armed Forces History Museum In Largo

The Armed Forces History Museum in Largo, FL is hoping to put a bit more memorial back into Memorial Day.  The 8th Annual Memorial Day Funfest is Monday, May 30 from 9 am to 3 pm.

The Museum is billed as the “largest military collection in the Southeast”.  It has 50,000 square feet of animated dioramas, interactive exhibits, special audio and visual effects, and military equipment, vehicles and memorabilia. (info courtesy of the museum).

Armed Forces History Museum In Largo is at 2050 34th Way North Largo, FL. Click here for a map. They can be reached at 727-539-8371. Or click to their website here. Although I did not find much information on their website about this event.

 

Guest appearances for the wreath laying ceremony are by US Rep. David Jolly and Largo Mayor Woody Brown. The proceeds of the event will go towards educating local children about history.  The ceremony begins at 11:50.

Video courtesy of Carol Samsel.

Visiting the Pearl Harbor Room is quite an experience with model boats from movies, video of the attack, and the sounds of war.  The interactive displays will send through artifacts from  WWI and WWII as well as other, more recent, conflicts like Desert Storm, and Iraq. There are vehicles for the kids to climb in and “pretend” drive.

Ticket Cost is $10/adults and $5/children.

 

Armed Forces History Museum In Largo

The idea of a Memorial Day event here is to remind us all what the Memorial Day Holiday represents. So bring your kids and let them have fun and learn about why we have a Memorial Day. 

Whatever you do, the Weidman Team wishes you a safe and happy Memorial Day.
