This Saturday is PetFest at the site of the proposed Lubbock Aquarium. Along with a ton of other fun family stuff to do, there will also be live stingrays for you to pet.

I've done the stingray petting before and its really cool. Plus the kids absolutely love it! Well most of them do, some kids freak out, but that's ok because there will be a ton of other stuff to do at PetFest. The website says to look forward to:

Stage Shows, Carnival Games, Go Kart Rides, Rockwall, Jumpers, Pony Rides, Food Trucks, Vendors, Car show and MORE!

I'll be there with my kids and I'll also be judging to cat competition around 1 PM. There will be other pet competitions throughout the day so bring the whole family and stay all day for a good time.
