Seriously!: Alligator Pool Parties Are the Latest Trend in Kids’ Birthdays

Looking for an out-of-the-box idea for your kid’s next birthday party? How about an alligator pool party? One Florida businessman is starting a new trend by bringing alligators to backyard pools and allowing them to swim with children.

Bob Barrett, owner of the Alligator Attraction, joined Fox and Friends to talk about the idea. He said, “The kids just love it, it’s something different, something that they have that a lot of the other children do not have.”

Barrett stresses that a handler is always in the pool with the gator, and that these are not wild alligators, but ones who have been raised and handled from a young age.
