Animal Day at Zany Zoo
And whether you're an adorable kitten or an adorable alligator, if you're an animal, this is your day. Friday, October 4, is World Animal Day. And Catholic churches observe the Blessing of the Animals on Saturday. St. Peter's Church will hold the special blessing at 1 p.m. The event dates to the 13th century and a tradition started by St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
