We Celebrated the Alpacas!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Alpaca show was a fun trip.  It turns out that alpacas come in many different forms, each with a fascinating face.  The exhibitors had come from a wide range of places, from Florida, Iowa and Pennsylvania as well as Waxhaw and Asheville.  There were hundreds of  animals.  Enjoy some photos:

Carolina Alpaca Celebration 2013. We’ll visit the show this Saturday

to see lots of cute alpacas, to watch some judging and to buy fiber,
yarn and finished garments. Here’s our plan:

10 a.m. meet up to car pool at Cotswold Shopping Center near the Wells
Fargo Bank
10:30 a.m. meet up with others at Lowes/Target on Albemarle Road near
Harrisburg Road
11 a.m. Arrive at Cabarrus events Arena

You can join us at any location. Parking is $5 at the show, admission
is free to walk in. We should be at the show for 1-2 hours.

Afterwards, we will be heading to Troutman’s for lunch. We’ll head
back to Lowes/Target and Cotswold Shopping Center so everyone can pick
up their cars.
