Oct 18-19 Carnival of the Animals
At one point or another, we’ve all compared someone to an animal: boys are rats, your best friend’s a snake, and your teacher bares a striking resemblance to an elephant with a pituitary problem. But what if one day that all came true? Take a sneak peek inside the mind of one student as he falls asleep in the American Museum of Natural History and fantasies of people-turned-animals become a reality.

Oct 18-27 Boo in the Zoo
While nothing screams fun, fun, fun like dragging a five-year-old Spiderman around the neighborhood for hours praying that no one dares give him a box of raisins, it’s much better to have all that excitement in one place.

Sure, this year’s festival will be loaded with favorites like the Ferris wheel, beauty pageants, and farm animals, but there will also be a few fair newcomers like the Great American Frontier Show. Here is a place where no one looks at you sideways for wearing a shirt with the sleeves cut off or wedging multiple wads of cotton in your cheeks. Take advantage while you can.

So, what does one do when deposed from your rightful throne and sent off to sea with your young daughter?
