Growing Up Green with Bob and Larry of Veggie Tales

Bob and Larry will once again make an appearance at The Rock Ranch on Saturday, Oct. 24 for Growing Up Green, featuring Bob and Larry of Veggie Tales.

In addition to enjoying The Rock Ranch’s many attractions like the pedal boats, pedal carts, giant slide, locomotive train, and others, guests will be able to have their photos taken with the popular Veggie Tales characters.

Various booths, presentations and demonstrations will also provide information about “green” topics such as alternative energy, recycling, composting and more. The keynote speaker is Danny Orlando with Energy Star – EPA, who was featured in the movie “Kilowatt ‘Ours,” seen by more than 73 million people.

A favorite activity of the day is the “Veggie 500” where guests work in teams to build and race cars made of vegetables. There will be series of races and the first-place winners will compete later in the afternoon for a grand prize.

There will also be an amazing birds of prey program conducted by Dale Arrowwood of Winged Ambassadors, a reptile show by Jason Clark of Animal Planet, and a photo scavenger hunt.

Special guests for this event are the Girl Scouts of America.

Admission to The Rock Ranch is $14 per person and $2-off coupons are available at participating Chick-fil-A restaurants. Children 3 and under are admitted free. Fall Family Fun Days hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each Saturday through Nov. 14.
