    It’s all about pets at the Loudoun Pet Expo

    The 1st Annual Loudoun Pet Expo will be held Saturday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fireman’s Field, 250 S. Nursery Ave., Purcellville.
    As a lifelong lover of animals, Marion Esposito has owned and operated a pet sitting business, and has 10 animals that she cares for at home. She always thought it would be great to organize a pet expo in Purcellville, bringing together all of the local animal organizations and businesses in one place for the day.

    She discussed the idea with several people and received such an enthusiastic response that she began making plans and coordinating the event.

    The 1st Annual Loudoun Pet Expo will be held Saturday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fireman’s Field, 250 S. Nursery Ave., Purcellville.

    “I’m really excited, it is going to be a very large event, supporting and raising awareness for pet and animal businesses, organizations and nonprofits. I hope it will become an annual event,” said Esposito.

    Featuring all kinds of animals from horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and more, the day will include keynote speakers, demonstrations, over 60 animal-related vendors, food vendors, pony rides, a petting zoo, hourly door prizes and more.

    Esposito said she encourages people to come with their dogs on a leash, bring chairs and picnic blankets and make a day of it in a beautiful park setting.
