Sheep travel south down Main Street in Ketchum on Sunday during the 23rd annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival’s main event, the Big Sheep Parade. Throngs of spectators watched as some 1,500 sheep passed through downtown, during a weekend packed with family activities, music and cooking demonstrations. “We’re thrilled with the wonderful spirit and energy from the 2019 Trailing of the Sheep Festival, and Mother Nature set a beautiful stage,” festival Executive Director Laura Musbach Drake said. “Thanks to our presenters, performers, chefs, restaurants, special guests, volunteers, donors and patrons for another great year.”
The Oinkari Basque Dancers of Boise entertain the crowd at Roberta McKercher Park in Hailey on Saturday, during the festival’s annual Folklife Fair. The daylong event featured sheep-shearing and weaving demonstrations, along with lamb-oriented food, Peruvian music, exuberant dancing and perfect fall weather.
