Hedgehogs in Etna

If it's still Saturday before around 4:00pm and you're reading this, definitely visit the Etna Fire Station to see the Eastern States Hedgehog Show. (Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids 5-12, and free for kids below 5.)

We were there when it was fairly quiet, opening and getting ready for a talk by Cornell Vet School professor Dr. James Morrisey about hedgehog diseases. They'll be having judging from 1:30-3:30pm. At 3:45pm there's "bomber bowling" - maybe hedgehogs in exercise balls? - and from 4:30-5:00pm there's a hedgehog costume contest.

Can't make it? I've also posted a gallery of more of the show.
