LONG ISLAND PARROT SOCIETY
PARROT EXPO - OCTOBER 1st 2016!
ANNUAL PARROT EXPO!!
Presented by The Long Island Parrot Society, PARROT EXPO 2016 will be an all-day extravaganza of colorful exotic birds, interactive displays, scheduled demonstrations and workshops and a fabulous array of 'parrotphernalia' on sale in the huge vendor room.
The opulent VENDOR ROOM is a great place to do your ‘Pollyday’ shopping… for your favorite birds and humans too! The raffle lobby is always a big attraction;
cages and accessories, bird food, toys and accessories dominate the laden tables, while the gorgeous gift baskets always garner raves from winners…that could be you! The education center is a ‘don’t miss’ destination of the day, with live birds and lots of volunteers to answer your questions.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO VENDORS: The Freeport Recreation Center will no longer permit the Long Island Parrot Society or vendors to borrow/use their flatbed dollies for loading and unloading supplies and merchandise. Please bring YOUR OWN hand truck or dolly to the event. We apologize for the inconvenience.
