Surrounded by sharks

If you thought SharkCon 2021 was a blast, get ready for the 2022 production.

SharkCon will be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds on July 15 and 17 and will be bigger and better than ever. You’ll find shark celebrities and photographers over the 2-day shark extravaganza. It takes place at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

If you haven’t had a chance to attend SharkCon in the past, here’s what you can expect. You’ll essentially be diving into the ocean. Whether you just love shark lore or you’re an expert who knows everything about sharks, you will have a blast. What are your favorite shark facts? I love that they are nature’s perfect predator, using all their senses to hunt prey in the most effective manner. In fact, they can smell 1 drop of blood as far as a quarter mile away.

Local groups including Tampa Bay Watch and Florida Fish and Wildlife will also be a part of SharkCon. National Geographic and OCEARCH will be there, too. There are numerous free activities for families to enjoy.

As I mentioned regarding the celebrities…you never know what kind of shark celebrities you’ll run into. National Geographic’s SHARKFEST crew will be there. You’ll meet various scientists and personalities from various aquariums and even from Animal Planet. All kinds of vendors will be there, too. You can choose from the 150+ vendors to buy shark related items.

If you are feeling philanthropic, you can find out more about at least a dozen non-profits. Plenty of opportunities to involve yourself with saving marine life. You’ll even have a chance to try out some indoor scuba diving.

It wouldn’t be a SharkCon without a Jaws screening, and this year it is Jaws 2. The cast of the film will be there, as well, so you can enjoy meeting the cast and asking questions.
