Petting Zoo Returns to MVT: Saturday, August 11

Join the MVT CID on Saturday, August 11 from 10 AM – Noon for the always popular petting zoo to coincide with the FRESHFARM MVT Market. Enjoy getting to know the adorable bunnies, llamas, goats, donkeys and sheep from Leesburg Animal Park. View the photo album and video from 2017 for some of the sights and sounds from last year’s petting zoo. The event is free and open to the public. Future event updates such as postponment due to inclement weather will be provided as soon as possible via the MVT CID's social media channels. Follow the MVT CID on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.

The petting zoo is just one of the many fun and free Ward 6 Week 2018 events being promoted by Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen to get to know your neighborhood – and neighbors – a little better. Check out the Ward 6 Week 2018 website and Twitter post for the full line-up of events!

Note: As a pet-friendly community, the MVT CID is committed to the responsible treatment of animals and only partners with organizations whose practices align with our core values. Leesburg Animal Farm has a proven track record of – and commitment to – ethical principles related to animal welfare, protection and conservation. For many years we have partnered successfully with the organizaton to host this very popular community event. And each year we first obtain (by a licensed veterinarian) an inspection of all animals that will appear in the petting zoo, and then an operating permit from DC's Department of Health. It is our hope that this communication provides our stakeholders and patrons with any added comfort needed to happily enjoy this event.
