Animal shows, food trucks and family activities such as pony rides and a petting zoo await visitors at the seventh annual Nature Fest on April 26 hosted by the master-planned community of Bridgeland.

"We're thrilled to host Nature Fest for the seventh year," said Peter Houghton, vice president of master-planned communities for Howard Hughes. "With the entertainment we've lined up, attendees are in for a fun-filled day."

Visitors to this year's event will attempt to break the world record for the most people giving a simultaneous birdcall. At least 802 people need to make the birdcall for at least 10 seconds to break the record.

One new exhibit this year is the Austin Bike Zoo—an assembly of puppetry and mechanics that features pedal-powered animal art such as two butterfly bikes, one of which is 15-feet tall.

Returning exhibits include the Staples Safari Zoo, featuring rescued lemurs, kangaroos and monkeys, and the reptile show Crocodile Encounter. The Circus Safari will perform two acrobatic shows during Nature Fest as well.

The annual event also features pony and camel rides, arts and crafts, bounce houses and a petting zoo. Additionally, more than 10 food trucks will be on-site, including Bernie's Burger Bus, Kona Ice, Frosted Betty, Monster PBJ, Koagie Hots and Custom Confections.
