"I myself am a big animal lover," said Tanya Luciano of Carbondale. "So I've loved animals ever since I was a kid. So for me a petting zoos are always a good thing. No matter how old I am."

No matter how old or young you are a petting zoo is fun.

Along with getting to pet some unique animals, kids can also go on a horse ride around the riding rink next to the petting zoo.
