AB/C Brings Back the Great American Turtle Race

Angelina County is getting ready for its first Amazing Turtle Race. Angelina Beautiful/Clean has 3,000 turtles available for adoption.

The adopted turtles will be released in Ellen Trout Zoo Lake and travel through pump-fed waters along the Turbo Turtle Track.

The top winners will get all kinds of prizes, including a diamond necklace, a trip or a laptop computer. You don't have to be present to win.

The Amazing Turtle Race will be held September 9th at 2:00 p.m. at the Ellen Trout Zoo Lake. For more information on where you can adopt a turtle, go to www.amazingturtlerace.com.
