Weekend Watch: Animal Planet, Live in Germantown

Filed Under:

Since my own little one is absolutely ga-ga for animals of all kinds, my weekend pick is a no-brainer:

The Discovery Channel is hosting its Animal Planet Expo all weekend in Germantown, MD. It's FREE and open to all ages, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day on the grounds of the Ridge Rd. Rec Park, 21555 Frederick Rd.

This thing has live animals up close and personal, dog shows with the requisite frisbee catching, a "Bug House" with creepy crawlers and butterflies, fun booths, face painting, and local shelters featuring animals who need loving homes. Since the Ridge Rd. Rec Park is already one of Montgomery County's favorite dog parks, there will be plenty of local canines on the scene, too.
