BY MARK GOODSON — The A-May-Zing Animal Fest took place on May 16 and featured multiple sites for animal interaction and education, a children’s puppet show, face painting, food truck vendors, ongoing boat tours; all beside the beauty of the Anacostia riverfront park.

A four mile boat tour cruised to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens with a guide to point out the Great Blue Heron, Osprey, duck, beaver, deer, geese, and turtle living along the river.

Animal exhibits brought out farmers and nature lovers from all over Maryland. Donnie brought goats and chicks from his Glenn Dale farm. Alpaca Joy and her daughters Tara and Ashley came from Howard County to display an Alpaca pen. Reptile Wonders from Westminster, Walter’s Honey Farm from Lanham, and the Watkins Nature Center from Upper Marlboro all made the trip.
