Places to Have a Child’s Birthday Party in Pensacola – Updated 7/16/2013

*This list was updated on 7/16/13.  If there is something that you think we missed, please leave us a note or send me an email at julie at pensacolawithkids dot com.

We have had birthday parties at a few of the places and have attended parties at a few of the places.  That being said, there are some on this list that I love, some that were ok, some I haven’t been to and some I might never step in again.  I am not going to give an opinion because that is what it is…merely a list of places you might want to look into if you are throwing a birthday for your child!

If you have a party location to add to this list, please comment or send me an email and I will add your suggestion.

Places to Have a Kid’s Birthday Party in Pensacola

**See our newest birthday party list updated on January 26, 2011!**

We are celebrating Big S’s birthday in the house this week so in honor of his birthday, I have listed some places where you can have a birthday party around town.  This is in no way a comprehensive list and it is in alphabetical order.  I gathered the list from places we have been and various message boards.  We have had birthday parties at a few of the places and have attended parties at a few of the places.  That being said, there are some on this list that I love, some that were ok, some I haven’t been to and some I might never step in again.  I am not going to give an opinion because that is what it is…merely a list of places you might want to look into if you are throwing a birthday for your child!  If you have something to add to this list, please comment or send me an email and I will add your suggestion to the list.

Repticon in Town This Weekend!


 

Repticon is in town this weekend through Sunday at the Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds.  If you didn’t get a chance to go yesterday, they are open from 10 am – 4 pm today.

Kids and adults are welcome to experience this wonderful and educational event.  Reptiles, including everything from snakes, spiders and lizards to alligators are there on display, some of which you can touch and feel.  If you have children, especially boys, they will love this experience.  Repticon focuses on the education of these creatures that do not always have the best reputation.

I had an up close and personal meeting with them on News Radio 1620 this past Friday.  Dylan and I were able to go to the station where the owners of Repticon and several of the starts of this weekend’s show were on the air with Branden Rathert.   Tim and Skip were there to promote the show this weekend and to explain a little more about what they do.  Repticon isn’t just about touring with the animals, it is more important for them to educate the public.  They do everything from birthday parties to public informational shows all the way to the big shows, such as the one at the fairgrounds this weekend.  Kids, and adults, are able to get hands on experience with some of the reptiles and learn about them.  The more you know, the better prepared you are if reptiles similar to these are seen in the wild.

Dylan was able to touch a Bearded Dragon, an Albino Burmese Python and a baby Alligator, all of which were controlled and very used to being touched by humans.  Tim and Skip also had a tarantula, chameleon and a larger alligator on hand that were a little too much for Dylan, but he looked from afar.

I would definitely suggest taking your kids today to see this amazing show.  They have over 80 reptiles that they bring to the shows and care for on a daily basis.  It is a great education for anyone that goes and an experience they will never forget.  $12 (Adult), $5 (Ages 5-12), ages 4 and under are free.

Here is the schedule for today.

11 AM – Reno’s Reptiles Live Animal Presentation

12 PM – Top Hat Geckos – Leopard Geckos

1 PM – 480 Pythons – First Time Pet Selection

2 PM – Ready to Go Reptiles – Top 3 Snakes

3 PM – Reno’s Reptiles – Live Animal Presentation
