The animals are out at the American West Heritage Center

The baby bears are back and Rebecca Getz, marketing director for the American West Heritage Center, said there is a lot more to see and enjoy at the 19th annual Baby Animal Days. Getz said the event opened Thursday and continues through Saturday and thousands of people are expected to attend.

Getz said the baby bears are located next to the little animals that the children love to cuddle.

“We’ve got quite a few,” she explained. “We’ve got some baby ducklings and baby chicks, lambs, kids, piglets, calves. We’ll have a mare foal, and then we’ll have some turtles and a lot of little critters out with us.”

Getz said the Candy Cannon goes off at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. each day on the festival grounds. Getz said patrons can visit the Woodright Shop, say hello to the Mountain Men in their new cabins, learn all about search and research dogs.
