WonderWorks Announces Change of Show Venue

After five very special years, the Hoot N’ Holler Dinner Show will be retired. Effective in 2011, we are happy to welcome “The Wonders of Magic” show, hosted by Terry Evanswood, as our permanent featured evening entertainment. As a company we remain dedicated to the entertainment and education of kids of all ages and look forward to the future of both WonderWorks and “The Wonders of Magic” brands. WonderWorks is committed to continuous growth and evolvement by providing fresh and innovative experiences for our guests.

As the Hoot N’ Holler comes to a close at the end of 2010, WonderWorks is proud to have been the home of the Hoot N’ Holler Dinner Show for the past five years, and are thrilled with the success it has seen both within our local community as well as our visiting guests.

As many of you know WonderWorks has a sister company the National Museum of Crime & Punishment located in Washington DC.  They have just rolled out a Fun & Furry  contest dedicated to mans best friend.

Contest begins September 1st
Inspired by the world’s most famous canine, McGruff the Crime Dog, The National Museum of Crime & Punishment would like to recognize those special dogs out there that protect and serve in their everyday life. Whether it be protecting the sofa from any fallen crumbs, serving the neighborhood by keeping the grass fertilized, or guarding doggie treats with extreme intensity we want to showcase how your special pooch serves you and your community.

Is your Dog Americas Next Top Dog

Contest:

Each month we will select our favorite Canine Cop of the Month, and each monthly winner will qualify for the national vote to crown the Canine Cop of the Year. Submissions for each month must be received by the 25th at 5:00PM EST. All submissions received after that date will be considered for the following month. Winners will be announced on the 29th of each month.

Creativity and props are encouraged, but please make sure all submissions are family-friendly. Also, we will not tolerate any animal to be treated inhumanely to elicit a unique picture, so please do not put your dog in any situation that is dangerous or would appear to be dangerous for your pet.

Who is eligible? Any dog whose owners are legal residents of the United States, please see contest rules on entry form for more details. We’re not necessarily looking for actual police or security dogs; we’re looking for any animal that protects and serves in their own way. We believe that all dogs help protect and serve our homes and communities, so send us a photo showing us how your beloved pooch serves his/her role!
