Reptile expo at Clarion


The second annual Konza Prairie Reptile Breeders Expo will be held at the Clarion Hotel this Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

“It’s an educational, fun experience. This year we have twice as many vendors as we did last year,” said Allison Karnowski, co-owner of Scaly Dave’s.

The event will be held in the Regency Ballroom, along with special exhibits throughout the halls. The event’s Web site boasts a “huge” selection of reptiles, feeders, arachnids and supplies.

“We’re also going to have the educational displays in the outer area so kids and anyone can get up close to see and touch the different reptiles.” Karnowski said.

Admission is $7, with no charge for children under the age of five. Students and military with a valid ID will receive a $1 discount on their tickets.
