The 5th Annual
Minnesota Guinea Pig Pignic
It's that time of year again! Time for
Minnesota guinea pig owners to gather and show off their piggers,
talk about their piggers, eat food while watching piggers play
and mingle, and buy things for their piggers - and themselves.
There are some interesting new events planned this year, such
as a chance for owners to have their pictures taken with their
fabulous guinea pigs, a flea market where used pet items can
be bought and sold, and a raffle with several nifty items.
We Minnesotans are not snooty - guinea
pig lovers from other parts of the country are welcome to join
in the festivities. For lots more information and updates, please
visit the 5th Annual Spring Minnesota Pignic web site: 2004MinnesotaPignic
Saturday, June 26th 2004 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm
Where: Bald Eagle/Otter Lakes Regional Park 5800 Hugo
Road, White Bear Township
All Guinea Pig Lovers Welcome!
Description: The Shelter is located by the parking lot as you
come into the park by Scenic Bald Eagle Lake. Bathroom Facilities
very close by.
Come meet and greet other piggy people
and their pigs. Bring your spouse, your kids, friends - and your
guinea pigs! We will have music, a hot grill and lots of food
and lively conversation. You may also want to bring something
to cook and perhaps an extra dish to share.
It is important that all
guinea pigs brought to the Pignic are healthy and free of bugs.
Please do not bring any guinea pigs that have recently been sick
or are currently being treated for an illness. Guinea pigs that
are suspected of having bugs or have been treated for bugs or
fungal infections in the last month should also be left at home
to ensure that they don't pass anything to the other pigs. We
also ask that all young children be closely supervised around
the animals and are not allowed to play with the guinea pigs
without first getting the owners permission.
Hope to see you there. Happy wheeking!
