Click play below to listen to KMZU’s Ashley Johnson speak with Gregg Woody, owner and operator of Woody’s Menagerie and Family Circus.
Woody’s Menagerie and Family Circus have been putting on this fascinating and educational show for 11 years now. “We do more of an animal education show,” said Woody, “We talk about where they’re from, what some of their habits are, and what people need to look for in the animals. We just like to share the animals with the people that are there at the festival to see and learn about them.”
Through the years, this Family Circus has built an extraordinary family of furry, feathered, and bone scaled animals. “We’ll have a Kinkajou, a Fennec Fox, Armadillos but none that are native to North America, we have Brazilian Armadillos,” Woody said, “We’ll also have a Eurasian Eagle Owl, which is the largest member of the owl family, they’re even larger than our Great Horned Owl.”
This show is for every one of every age who has any interest in animals. “We get people from 2 to 102 that come to our shows and enjoy it because of the vast variety of animals that we have,” said Woody, “We’ve got a few other animals that I of course haven’t mentioned that we get the ‘Wow factor’ out of. Usually when people show up to see the show, it’s hard to believe the different species of animals that we have with us.”
Admission to this amazing show is only $3.00 per person with show time at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Friday and three more on Saturday at 10:30 a.m., 12:30, and 4:30 p.m.
