Big Horn Sheep Festival

Courtesy of the Colorado Department of Wildlife

This Saturday, November 10, 2012, is the day for Georgetown's Bighorn Sheep Festival and it is no wonder that the sheep like to come down from the mountains and head toward town with all of the activities planned for the day.  Of course, there is also the fact that it's mating season and stepping out to town for a date is a time-honored tradition in so many cultures.  

To learn more about Georgetown's herd and the schedule of activities for the day, click here: Better yet, come to town and see them in person.  

Though I have a variety of wool at The Quilted Purl, none of it comes from the Bighorn Sheep.  However, you could celebrate the day by knitting!
