Alligator Attraction Hopes Increase in Media Will Help John's Pass
With big news outlets like NBC, CNN and Good Morning America wanting to know more about the alligator pool parties, the Alligator Attraction is hoping the extra attention will help all of John's Pass.
The alligator pool parties at the Alligator Attraction that we previously reported on has been getting some national attention from bigger media outlets, like CNN and Good Morning America.
Bob Barrett is happy for much of the attention, but is hoping that the attention will pass along to all of his community in John’s Pass.
“The tens of millions of viewers will hopefully find their way to John’s Pass,” Barrett said.
Barrett has spent time fielding interviews from numerous media corporations, including the Associated Press. He has worked hard to talk to all of them, but had to decline on Anderson Cooper’s offer to fly him up to New York.
“I’ve got gators to take care of,” Barrett said.
Since the media caught hold of the story, the Florida Wildlife Commission came out to check out the Alligator Attraction on September 26.
“They came and everything is fine,” Barrett said.
Barrett is taking the opportunity to plug John’s Pass as a whole in his interviews with the national media outlets.
“Everyone I’ve been interviewing wants to take about the a pool party and I tell them the attraction is in John’s Pass, Madeira Beach,” Barrett said.
With the increased media coverage of the Alligator Attraction, more business will come into John’s Pass, Barrett said.
“This is going to be great for John’s Pass,” Barrett said.
