Browsing through Friday's local paper I came across an ad for "12th Annual Michigan International Alpaca Fest". It's open 9/20-21 at the Birch Run Expo Center and it's "FREE!! OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!" Damn! Missed Saturday and have to work Sunday at the store so looks like I'll have to miss it this year.
They have a halter show , spinning circle, performance show, demonstrations, seminars, Alpaca textiles, clothes, art, jewelry, yarn "and more". It's located 11600 North Beyer Rd, 15 miles north of Flint off I-75, Exit 136. (Birch Run, MI) More info @ 248.627.7066
I'm really sorry I found it so late. If anyone goes, have a great time and maybe I'll see you there next year.
