Watching Sheep Walk Through Sun Valley is Strangely Entertaining
I can't explain this. But, to me, watching sheep walk through the middle of Sun Valley is fun. Maybe that makes me a bad person, but it's true.
This video was taken during the Trailing of the Sheep Parade in Sun Valley back in October. The parade is part of the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. If you've never been to this celebration, here's a description from the official event website.
The Festival is five days of nonstop family events including multicultural performers, storytelling, culinary events and cooking classes, a Fiber Festival, Championship Sheepdog Trials, a Sheepherder’s Ball and the Big Sheep Parade with 1,500 sheep trailing down Main Street in Ketchum, Idaho.
In 2015, the combined attendance at the five-day Festival topped 26,000 with people coming from 36 states and eight foreign countries. The economic impact to the Valley during the Festival is estimated at $4.5 million.
If you would like to peruse the pics from this year's event, the organizers have shared a zillion images on their website.
