There was plenty of activity in Coulter Parkette, downtown Port Elgin April 20 as the Port Elgin BIA hosted its fifth annual Easter Petting Zoo.

The animals, supplied from Tiger Paw from Arthur, Ontario, saw animals of all sorts including rabbits, ducks, chickens, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs, a llama and a camel. Pony rides were also on offer.

The rain held off for most of the day giving children and their families a chance to interact with and feed the animals.


The stern stare of the Llama gave 3-year old Alex (left) and 5-year old Ana lots to laugh about at the Port Elgin BIA's Easter Petting Zoo.

Hundreds of people came to see the animals at the fifth annual Easter Petting Zoo in Coulter Parkette April 20.


Four-year old Charlotte was all smiles as she fed one of the many goats.


Aiden (11) from Owen Sound was enjoying some time petting the pigs.


The ducks were paying close attention to the crowd, especially those who came with food.

All the excitement was too much for some as these young kids took a mid-day nap next to their mother.
