Orlando, FL — Repticon has been coming to the Central Florida Fairgrounds for over ten years now. Their slogan is “Sharing the reptiles with the world.” Repticon Orlando repeats three times a year at the same location. This expo is like a mini zoo with only reptiles including snakes, lizards, turtles, and much more. Stop by for some family friendly fun. This expo is held on Saturday, January 28, 2017, from 10am – 5pm and Sunday, January 29, 2017, from 10am – 4pm, at the Central Florida Fairgrounds at 4603 West Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32808. One-day admission costs is $12 per person. Tickets can be purchased online and or at the door.
When traveling down to the Central Florida Fairs Grounds in Orlando it is an easy ride. Plus, there was plenty of free parking. It is recommended to arrive early to get the best parking spaces closest to the event area. Please note there is another show going on at the same time on the same days in January.
Upon arriving on property, look for the large inflatable King Cobra snake outside the event building. A ticket booth is adjacent to the building. When walking into the building one will notice many vendor booths. It is not matter if one starts in the front of the building and or the back of the building. Plus, there are a few free animal shows to check out.
There is a wide variety of price ranges for this live animals. Why paid retail when you can buy at slightly below market prices. There are some good deals at this expo. They even sell the food for your animals too. For most snake owners some of them buy the frozen rats to feed to their snake.
This is a family friendly event. It is worth your time to see and touch some of these reptiles. Just be mindful of some of these animals because they may bite. Always ask for assistance from the vendor attendant at the booth before touching any animal. We hope to see you here!
