Painting is also permitted. Please click here for prize information, contest rules, and registration forms. The Recycled Art Contest ends April 19th!
The Hiss America Pageant:
Does you reptile pet want to be a star? Does he or she always slither with ease or walk with poise? Is your reptile pet just the most beautiful creature you have ever seen? Well, then you must enter them in 12th Annual Reptile Fest Hiss America Pageant! The Hiss America Pageant will run just like a real beauty pageant, only with reptiles! During Reptile Fest (right before the Reptile Show), human participants will walk the runway with their pet and answer questions about their pet. Participants are encouraged to dress their pet or decorate their pet's enclosure! The winners of the Hiss America Pageant and the Hiss Congeniality Contest will each go home with a special prize package! PLUS Katelyn Pawlowski, Miss CSU 2013, will be the Master of Ceremonies!
