Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival
November 8, 2014 - Georgetown, Colorado
This family-friendly event is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of rutting sheep in one of Colorado’s oldest Bighorn sheep herds. The sheep viewing station is located on Argentine Street near the Georgetown Lake and will be manned by volunteers and Division of Wildlife employees to help you and your family learn about Colorado’s state mammal. Spotting scopes are provided and other activities abound! Short wildlife educational programs are offered in the Community Center for the whole family. Additional activities for the children include Kids Corner Crafts, face painting, Colorado Critters Parade, and the Bighorn Hokey Pokey. With holiday singers, children’s chorus, hot chocolate, a visit from St. Nick, a big bonfire to keep you warm and more, this is a favorite holiday tradition in Georgetown! Come join us for the annual tree lighting and see downtown historic Georgetown lit up for the holiday season! Contact Beth at 303-519-0357 for more information.
