It’s called “Baby Animal Days” because the spring festival at the America West Heritage Center is the place where children love to go so they can actually hold and cuddle new little animals. Families will find that and much more on Thursday, Friday and Saturday April 2-4 according to the center’s marketing manager Rebecca Getz.
She says all members of the family will enjoy the live cowboy music, the mountain men, fishing, and the baby bears from Yellowstone Bear World.
“Then we’ll have all of our traditional baby animals: lambs, piglets, calves, goat kids, foals, chicks and ducklings,” Getz explains. “We’ll have our candy cannon that will go off two times each day. We’ll have the cow milking. We’ll have our historic interpreters there in full costume and all the historic sites will be open. We will have lots of vendors.
“We’ll have our pony rides, horse rides, and train rides. We’ll also have some demonstrators. We will have some old fashion sheep shearing and the search and rescue dogs will come out to do a demonstration as well.”
Getz says after several years of absence the bison will be back so there will be bison tours and tractor rides through the bison.
