Happy belated mother’s day to all those who are mothers and to the hope that you had an enjoyable yet relaxing day.
The purpose of this email is to give you all the schedule for the Animal Planet Expo Tour. What is the Animal Planet Expo tour you say? Well I am here to tell you it is a huge extravaganza! If I can quote J. Steven Pulick, “it’s all about the kids.” There will be professional face painters, an mc, free PepsiCo samples, a bounce house for the kids or really immature adults, an inflatable alligator that kids race through, a theater with a film & an animal exhibit, a bug house, games & all sorts of giveaways. You can also bring your dog or cat and get a free pet tag! Sounds pretty terrific I know. It will be colossal, 400 x 400 sqaure foot area, fun & educational because the Animal Planet channel is brought to us by the Discovery Channel & those people are almost asbig in education as the Learning Channel.
Now, May, June & July are set. The weekend of August 5th & 6th we are scheduled to be in Boston but since old beantown was a late addition, the exact location has not been finalized. We are scheduled for Hartford, CT the following weekend but we don’t have a venue as of yet. For all those familar with event marketing, this means that these markets still have time to fall through & be replaced with another city.
You can call me at 860 810 6890 or send me an email if you have any questions. Once the Boston, Hartford & Baltimore locations get finalized, or changed, I will forward the information.
This schedule also ensures that I will miss the Fourth again, 3rd time since 2002, and most likely the Riverfest, although there is a slight possibility that I may be able to show up on the Monday or Tuesday afterwards to hang out if there are any hardcore people still hanging around. Sorry, but you all should be getting used to this by now.
To Miss Jennifer, I will miss your last show but I will day this, you can’t do a a few shows while you’re 8 or 9 months pregnant? Thanks.
To my friends at ignition, inc., who have Coca-Cola as a client, I am in charge of the PepsiCo tent but will not be partaking in any of their samples because my attorney reminded me that I swore a blood oath to Coca-Cola over 4 years ago, has it been that long?, and the statute of limitations on that is still alive.
Hope all is well with everyone and maybe I’ll get to see some of you when we hit or come near your town! Take care!
