New for this year, Squeals on Wheels, a great petting zoo for all ages, will be on site all four days, and will feature a hedgehog, an alpaca, a giant Flemish rabbit, a 24" full-grown dwarf miniature horse, and several other animals. Children have a chance to pet and interact with the animals and especially love the miniature ducks, miniature chickens and miniature rabbits. Squeals on Wheels is Montgomery County's only traveling petting zoo.
