New Play Area
We always tell people that we are a work in progress. We are constantly adding and updating in order to make The Menagerie a more enjoyable experience each and every time you visit. We have several field trips joining us in May at The Menagerie, so we wanted to add more entertainment. That came in the form of old tires!
Before setting up our design, we let the guys jump around on top to see if it would hold up, and it did. Who knew they could have so much fun! Thanks to K&S Tires for letting us rummage through their worn out pile!
Next, we started setting up the design and digging holes. Calvin might have had too much fun digging holes with the track-hoe. Thanks to Joey Melton for letting us rent it. That made things go a lot quicker than just digging by hand.
Although, filling in by hand was necessary.
River thought that the big tires made the perfect shady spot.
Eventually, all of the tires were set up and the holes were filled in. It's not quite finished yet, but it's almost there!
Come on out and test it out! We'll be open this Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm. Admission is $6 per person with each person receiving a small cup of feed. Additional baggies of feed are available for $1 each. And don't forget about our gift shop that's now open! We look forward to seeing you!
Plans for Easter weekend
Lots of people have been asking about our plans for Easter weekend. We've been reluctant to answer because we weren't sure if we would be in the hospital having a baby or not. At this time, it's looking as though that will not be the case, so we have finally made plans so you can make yours!
And don't forget that if you're in Alva on Saturday morning, we contributed filled eggs to the Chamber of Commerce Egg Throw to be held after the Easter egg hunt on the square. The Egg Throw will happen between rounds of the Egg Drop. Lots of businesses who are members of the Chamber contributed to these filled eggs, so there will be lots of goodies for kids and adults! As a reminder, we will be opening at 1pm that Saturday so we can participate in all of the fun downtown!
Each day as we wake up here at The Menagerie, we never know what we're going to step in...literally and figuratively! Each day is a new day, and we try to make the best of it. Follow along!
