Tuesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, James Nesmith from the Lubbock Science Spectrum joined Dave and Matt to talk about the upcoming Critterfest and other things to do at the Science Spectrum.

Critterfest is the Science Spectrum's most popular annual event. "The Science Spectrum turns into a zoo for 4 days. Obviously there's no zoo in Lubbock, and so people get really excited about all these animals coming to town," Nesmith said. They will have all sort of things going on there including face painting, extra concessions, petting zoos, camels and elephants you can ride, balloon animals, and more. On top of that, buying a ticket gets you into the full Science Spectrum museum including the aquarium and dog agility demonstration.

Nesmith also talked about two big shows that they will be having during Critterfest this year, including Close Encounters of the Exotic Kind which is a live tiger and lion show. Another show is Crocodile Encounters, where they will have live american alligators, nile crocodiles, and other reptiles. Also in the omnitheater, they are currently playing Great Barrier Reef and will soon be playing Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation.

Critterfest will take place at the Science Spectrum on June 27th-30th from 10am to 6pm everyday.
