Meet Milwaukee Brewer Craig Counsell at the Great Lakes Pet Expo
MILWAUKEE, WI. – Over 300 of Wisconsin’s furriest residents will welcome Milwaukee Brewer
(and animal lover), Craig Counsell, to the Great Lakes Pet Expo on Super Bowl Saturday,
February 4, 2012. Whether you’re looking for an autograph from a heavy hitter or some heavy
petting, animal lovers big and small will have a blast at the biggest pre-game party in Southeast
Wisconsin. In the mood for kittens and puppies? A llama or minihorse? Maybe a reptile or two?
Perhaps some good family entertainment or pre-game activities? Whether you’re looking to
interact with hundreds of species or just kick back and watch a parade, the Great Lakes Family
Pet Expo has it all!
This eighth annual event is organized by the Alliance of Wisconsin Animal Rehoming Efforts
(AWARE) and will be held at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park in West Allis,
WI. from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Expo will showcase hundreds of exhibits featuring the newest pet
products to hit the market and entertainment guaranteed to drop jaws, bring smiles, and leave
the audience wanting more. Interact with over 300 animals available for adoption! The reptile
education area provides chills and thrills to those daring enough to enter and interact with
snakes, gators, spiders, lizards, and more.
“This event has become a favorite of area pet lovers” said Penny Romasko, Expo Director. “This
year’s event will incorporate activities for Packer’s fans, big and small, to energize them for the
big game.” The event is being held at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park on
Super Bowl Saturday. What better way to prepare for the big game than challenging football
games for big and small?
