The Big Sky Country State Fair opens this week. I know some of you are thinking that means cotton candy, rides, music and 4 H animals...but there is more.

The Aussie Kingdom will be there. That means you will be able to see and touch animals from Australia. This morning on my show, Dominick In The Morning, we had a visit from the Aussie Kingdom and they brought some animals.

Here is a nine-minute video of just some of the things you will see at the state fair.

Aussie Kingdom is not only fun, but it will be very educational for your children. They will see and learn about various species native to the outback. It's also a hands-on experience, you will be able to touch and pet them.

Kangaroos, wallabies, walleroos, lizards and native Australian birds will be on display. They have three shows a day, so make sure you put the Aussie Kingdom as one of the spots you check out at the State Fair.

Take the family. I am not saying you are a bad parent if you don't take the children to the Big Sky Country State Fair and see the Animal Kingdom...but you should.
