How great are sloths? You have a chance to have an up close experience with one this weekend and you don't even have to drive that far!

I was so excited to see trending on Facebook that the Foundation for Animal Rescue and Education (FARE) will be hosting a special sloth event this weekend and it's only a little over an hour away in Poughkeepsie.

The Foundation for Animal Rescue and Education is combining forces with Little Ray’s Nature Centers and ZooAmerica to bring to the area the first ever Natural History Exhibition at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center.  The exhibition will feature over 30 live animal exhibits and one of those exhibits is the ability to meet a sloth!

Tickets are available at the door or online beforehand and are $12 for adults, $10 with proof of a Facebook share, and children under 2 are free! There's also an opportunity to have a VIP meet & greet with the sloth, share the Facebook event and you'll be entered in a drawing. Say what you want about sloths but you can't deny that they are some of the coolest animals in the kingdom!
