WATERLOO (KWWL) -
Primates, tigers, and reptiles are all at the 102nd National Cattle Congress Fair in Waterloo.
Danny Conner's Reptile Adventures is just one of many attractions this year.
He prides himself on an educational, fun reptile show with snakes, turtles, and even an alligator.
Folks can catch this show, as well as the tiger and primates show every day at the fair.
"If you like animals this is where you need to be sometime because I know the monkey people really good and they do an awesome show. They got a baboon that's really fine and the tigers I haven't seen their show, but I have seen their animals and they are first rate and I think my animals are first rate too," said Conner.
There will also be plenty of livestock on display throughout the National Cattle Congress. The livestock, dairy and swine competitions have always been a cornerstone of the annual event. There will also be barrel racing on Friday night.
