Our float one 1st Place in the Simmesport Parade!


What a ride! The attached are some pics from the Morning Advocate in Alexandria. Ours was surely the best float as it is the only one that made the papers! :)

also received the following by email last night and the email kind of says it all:

PLEASE PLEASE tell me this is a place where the public can come? Do let the public buy tickets to come in and see your fabulous animals and go on safari tours? Do you let schools purchase tickets for the children to come your facility on school trips? My name is Kendra Van Cleef. I am so excited after searching for your website after someone told me you may have had a float in the Mardi Gras parade ... Please let me know.

Bringing our mission to the public is a great and good thing. Thanks to all of you for being such an integral part of all of our gift to the residents of Avoyelles Parish.
Thanks again to you all for your participation.
PS. If you have any pics please send them to me so we can include on our website. :)
