  • ReptiDay
    Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.

  • Live Nation National
    Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

  • AEG Live
    After five years away from American stages, the immutable hard-rock juggernaut of Guns N? Roses reuses its illusions to whip crowds into a frenzy during a notoriously raucous live show. Enigmatic siren Axl Rose, beloved for his lack of hubris and punk-rock stance against prolificacy, leads his wrecking crew of Roses through a two-hour tour of greatest hits culled from the band's groundbreaking mainstream debut album, Appetite for Destruction, the long-awaited Chinese Democracy, and everything in between. The group soars and shines throughout a marathon performance, ranging from turbo-charged rockers such as ?Welcome to the Jungle? and ?Sweet Child O? Mine? through ballads including ?November Rain.? With hatless new axeman Dj Ashba stepping into the shoes of Slash, and The Replacements? Tommy Stinson replacing Duff McKagan, Guns N? Roses is recharged and ready to quench destructive appetites with pure organic rock wrung from handpicked bandanas.

Street performers will roam the event acting out spontaneous small-group routines that could entertain attendees with circus acrobatics, choreographed dance, or digital art. An outdoor drink garden supplies thirsty ticketholders with coffee specialties from Mildred's Cafe as well as hand-muddled libations made by regional mixologists.

  • Yoga Rocks the Park
    Seven years ago, some like-minded yogis met in a Denver park to practice yoga in the great outdoors. They didn't know that in the years to come, their numbers would swell to the hundreds?or that this tradition would become an anticipated event in 20 cities. In that moment, they just wanted to celebrate an atmosphere of unity in nature. Today, Yoga Rocks the Park (Open Sky Marketing) meets on select Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and summer, drawing participants from locales such as Chicago, Phoenix, and San Diego. Though the movement's reach has yet to stop growing, all of its incarnations are staffed locally?area yoga teachers run the trademark 75-minute, all-levels class, and area pigeons act as the security team. At the same time, live musicians provide a soundtrack for the flowing series of poses, and local businesses within the community sell yoga- and wellness-related goods from a row of tents in the Wellness Vendor Village. Yogis of all ages are welcome. In fact, a class for kids keeps youngsters occupied while parents stretch in the sun.
