Baby Animal Days features more than just baby animals

Baby Animal Days opens Thursday and continues through Saturday at the American West Heritage Center. That means that once again young and old will have a chance to see and hold cute and fuzzy lambs, calves, kids, foals, chicks, ducklings and more.

The baby animals are one of the biggest attractions at the annual event according to Karen Larsen, education manager and volunteer.

But she says there is also much more to enjoy.

“This year we will have the return of the baby bears,” says Larsen. “They are being sponsored by Mountain America Credit Union. Also we are doing bison tours. You can jump onto a wagon and take a ride out into the field and see our bison we have here at the heritage center.”

Larsen says the candy cannon goes off at 12 noon and 2 p.m. each day on the festival grounds. You can also visit with the Mountain Man at his cabin, watch old-fashioned sheep shearing and don’t forget a bag of famous kettle corn. Hours at Baby Animal Days are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each of the three days.
