CELEBRATE SPRING AT PETTING FARM APRIL 12

Those friendly animals at the Heritage Park Petting Farm are inviting everyone to "Celebrate Spring" with them between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 12.

Sheep shearing will take place on the half-hour, beginning at 11 a.m. Visitors can watch Deb Caryl, a third-generation sheep shearer, make the animal more comfortable for the warm weather months. Lambie, last year's baby lamb, will be shorn for the first time. A farrier will demonstrate how to keep horse's and donkey's feet healthy.

The Tri-County Two-Cylinder Tractor Club will showcase prize vehicles. 

There will be an egg hunt at noon and 3 p.m. -- with a special prize for the child who finds the Golden Egg. 

Peppa, the pot-bellied pig, can't wait to greet visitors. Light refreshments will be available for purchase. Face painting by Flutterby Faces will also be available for an additional charge.

There will be a free shuttle from the community center parking lot to the farm.
