Brush with greatness
The kids of Pensacola and Gulf Breeze rubbed elbows with Barney
This past weekend, the children of Pensacola and Gulf Breeze Florida had their own brush with greatness when Barney the Dinosaur came to visit them at the new Gulf Breeze Zoo on Sprout Day. The old zoo has had a rough go of it, but now under new ownership and the support of the local community, the new zoo is back in the swing of things.
Not even the 98 degree heat could not keep one of the largest gatherings of kids this zoo has ever seen from racing to the big white tent to await Barney's arrival!
It is great to see the support for the zoo and even better to see everyone getting their minds off the issues with the Gulf.
