Wild West Pet Palooza

There’s an old-west showdown brewing at the Fair Park Band Shell!

Join the State Fair of Texas in welcoming one of the newest additions to the 2014 lineup; the Wild West Pet Palooza, featuring Joel Slaven’s Professional Animals.

Boasting an impressive cast of critters ranging from cats and dogs to pigs and porcupines, this show is full of family fun. This soon-to-be fairgoer-favorite includes an array of comical skits created and operated by a team of skilled professionals. The show is run by nationally acclaimed animal trainer Joel Slaven, who has been working with animals for over 40 years and has trained animals for major films such as “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “That Darn Cat.” Another unique aspect of the show is that all of the featured animals have been rescued from shelters across the nation. Slaven and his staff of trainers have adopted hundreds of homeless pets and brought them back to star in shows all around the country. These animals are given a second chance at life, with a happy home, plenty of play time and most importantly, lots of love and affection.

The show, produced especially for the State Fair of Texas, will be held daily in the historic Fair Park Band Shell at 1, 2:30, 4:30 and 6 p.m. Presented by Kroger.
