Alpacas draw a crowd in Warren
Warren — Ice cream, popcorn, apple cider and alpacas were the attractions at Evergreen Ridge Alpacas in Warren this weekend.
The event was part of National Alpaca Farm Days, held Sept. 28 and 29.
A large alpaca cut out figure served as a picture-taking venue with live alpacas roaming around the fields behind.
Explorers of all ages enjoyed learning about the animals, watching demonstrations on a cider press by Alan Dever, and listening to blue grass music by Jim Doyle.
