Southeastern Raptor Center
Raptors have three physical characteristics that set them apart from other birds: strong grasping feet with sharp talons, a hooked or hook-tipped beak and a diet that consists mostly of meat. If you like the sound of that, you’ll love visiting the Raptor Center at this year’s Auburn CityFest. The Auburn University Raptor Center is bringing some of their feathered friends (eagles, falcons, hawks, owls, etc.) to Kiesel Park, giving Auburn residents a chance to get a closer look at, not only the eagles that fly at the football games, but also other types of raptors. Stop by the Raptor Center exhibition to check out Auburn University raptors and learn more!
Aubie The Tiger
You read that right! The tiger will be joining us at CityFest this year to provide smiles and laughter to everyone. It is often said, Women love him, Children adore him, and Men want to be him! Come and hangout with this living spirit of Auburn and see why he is so admired!
Kids can take home an art kit at the ArtFest Tent sponsored by Auburn Parks and Recreation!
