The Avalon Church of Christ is hosting its annual Holiday Train Show this week — and it is a perfect Christmas treat for the family. Get photos with Santa, play the train yard scavenger hunt, enjoy tasty snacks, and chat with Tidewater Big Train Operators who love to share the joy of their model train hobby.

Dr. Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian, has been a model train enthusiast since his childhood. He’s passed the love of trains onto his children — not least of all a son who is now a freight conductor for a major North American railroad!

Whether you’re a fan of model railroads already — or just wondering what all the fuss is about — you’ll want to make time in your busy schedule this week to join in the fun. Grab a friend and go!

The Train Show is FREE and open to the public. Donations are welcome. The show is located at 844 Woodstock Road, Virginia Beach.

There’s nothing like the sights and sounds of multiple trains running at once! Check out these sneak peek videos and slideshow:

Halloween fun

Looks like someone’s stirring up trouble for the coast this weekend and possibly into next week. Can Halloween be saved? Or will the forces of Nature prevail? Stay tuuuuuuuned…

If you are looking forward to the Virginia Zoo’s Zoo Boo, take heart – it will take place on Saturday, November 3rd, instead of this weekend.

From my inbox:Virginia Zoo

In response to heightened weather concerns, the Virginia Zoo is moving Zoo Boo, the Zoo’s annual Halloween event, to the rain date Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012, including both Family Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Fright Night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
 
Pre-sale tickets will be honored on the new date.
 
Family Fun Day will start at 10 a.m. Guests can visit our animals at their habitats, as usual, and there will also be animal pumpkin smashing, costume contests and, of course, trick or treat candy stations. Admission for members—ages 2 and up—is $6; for nonmembers—ages 2 and up—is $11. Children under 2 are free.  Guests can take a Haunted Hayride for $1 per ride, or climb aboard the Zoo Boo Choo Choo for $3 per ride.
 
The Zoo will temporarily close at 3 p.m. and reopen for Fright Night at 6 p.m., when Zoo Boo will take on a more sinister tone, focused on thrilling adults and older children. There will still be costumes and candy, along with a Train of Terror, Haunted Hay Ride and more.  It’s so scary we have to put the animals inside! Admission for members—ages 2 and up—is $5; admission for non-members—ages 2 and up—is $8; children under 2 are free.

*****************************************************************
The news is not as good from the Hermitage Museum and Gardens, where All Hallow’s Eve festivities have been cancelled for Sunday, due to the approaching storm. That’s unfortunate, since the Hermitage is a pet-friendly location – and this would have been a great excuse to haul out your dog’s Headless Horseman costume again.
*****************************************************************
Meanwhile, our clinic will be open on Saturday this week, so be sure to stock up on your pet’s food and medicine, in case weather conditions deteriorate next week.
