Eudora Farms Petting Zoo

Eudora Farms is a culmination of hopes and dreams brought to life by Mark & Kim Nisbet. Mark and Kim first met in the summer of 1990. Kim was attending a dog training facility in North Carolina to become a Certified Obedience Instructor. Mark was using the professional dog handling services of the same facility to show his award winning Akitas. While it wasn't love at first sight, over the next several years their friendship grew as Kim's interest in Akitas was born. That friendship blossomed into true love in the summer of 1997 and they were married on September 26th, 1998 at Eudora Farms, surrounded by family, friends and their growing assortment of animals. Since that date they have provided a loving spacious home to more than 200 rare and exotic animals from around the world. As the collection of animals grew, so has their family. They have four children, Josh, Travis, Shelby, and Tristan. The Nisbet's enjoy raising their family on the outskirts of city life. Mark has a successful career as a regional sales manager for one of the largest clinical labs in the country. Kim manages the farm and cares for their children. Their overwhelming love and utmost respect for animals of the world has sent them on a journey in life to educate about and preserve these wonderful creatures for future generations to come.

Marc Dobson: One Man Band

Picture the opening of Mary Poppins with Dick Van Dyke as a One Man Band, except on steroids. The One Man Band, Marc Dobson performs "musical illusion" sounding like a band playing a variety of music from the 50's thru 90's. The appearance is a bit comedic playing a back pack drum kit via feet and arms while playing a guitar out putting both guitar & bass parts and harmonica. Seeing is believing, all performances and videos are completely live. Marc may be the most advanced Real One Man Band in the world. With interactive improv comedy, no two shows are alike.

The Moogician

Todd Charles (aka "The Moogician") has been a comedy-variety entertainer all of his life. His original and refreshing material that combines magic, juggling, music, and comedy, has taken him all over the world, performing in theaters, fairs, festivals, comedy clubs, and on cruise ships. The show is all about FUN! Lots of fun, and lots of milk. It's a non-stop, quick moving, high-energy show -- after all, it's powered by milk! You will learn things about dairy you never knew. There's magic, cowmedy, hoofin' around, and banjo moosic. Todd loves performing, and it shows! Milk appears, disappears, switches places, pours, and doesn't pour. Cheese balls appear, multiply, bounce around and juggle. Audience participants become superstars. "Dairy-Ann" the cow keeps a can filled with milk, and at the very end, she's spinning around Todd's head with her barnyard friends. Add some good down-home banjo pickin', and you have one great show! And as always, Todd makes sure the audience leaves his show knowing more about dairy and where it comes from than they did before. Milk is magical, cheese is juggle-able, butter is healthy, and cows are cool!
