Seriously, when else would you have the time and opportunity to watch Colorados official state animal? Thanks to the Colorado Division of Wildlife, which is sponsoring the event, festival-goers can see one of the oldest herds through spotting scopes during a viewing at the Georgetown Viewing Center (next to Georgetown Lake).
The full day of family-friendly events begin at 10 a.m. with plenty of programs and activities in various downtown venues, including performances from the bluegrass band Grass It Up, climbing walls, wagon rides, storytelling by the campfire and did we mention bighorn sheep?
The festival is free; Georgetown is just an hour west of Denver on I-70. For more information, call 303-291-7386 or visit http://wildlife.state.co.us/Viewing.
