There will be a busload of foreigners at Waynesboro’s “What on Earth Festival” this Friday, April 26.

Exotic animals from across the globe are headed downtown for the 5:30-7:30 p.m. Earth Day celebration.

The Wildlife Wonders bus is coming from Cleveland, Ga. to present “Animals Around the World” – an educational program about mammals, reptiles and birds that make their homes everywhere from the tropics to the desert.

Although the line-up varies from town to town, handlers will bring up to nine live animals and say a kangaroo or hedgehog is likely.

The group will be on stage for 45-minute programs at 5:45 and 6:45 p.m. The show is hosted by the Downtown Development Authority through an Operation Round-up Grant from Planters EMC.
