Jeff Musial of Nickel City Reptiles and Exotics wouldn't miss the Wildlife Festival in Lewiston. This will mark his 15th year of appearing there. He says "I postponed my honeymoon to do the Wildlife Festival 11 years ago."

Jeff's collection of critters is always a crowd pleaser and provide what he calls "educational entertainment". That's what the New York Power Authority's Wildlife Festival is all about. Community Affairs manager Teresa Martinez says "we have a lot of wildlife shows and conservation exhibitors, you could could spend all day here and have done everything that the festival has to offer."

Carmen Presti heads up the Primate Sanctuary and he as well as his rescued monkeys have been a huge attraction at the Wildlife Festival for the past 30 years.

The Wildlife Festival is September 24 & 25 10am to 5pm. It's free and there is always free parking. More information at their website.
