It’s time for Prospect Park Zoo’s sheep to get their summer haircuts during the annual Fleece Festival on May 20 and May 21.
After a long winter, the sheep are ready to get their thick, woolly coats sheared. Shearing expert Don Kading will explain the process and answer visitor questions before giving the sheep their annual trims.
All weekend long, the zoo is talking about farming and farm life, and getting you in the mood with felt-making and some special wool activities.
Zoo volunteers and wool experts will be on-hand to answer any questions you have about woolly animals and their coats.
Fleece Festival, May 20 and 21, from 10 am to 4 pm. Tickets are $8, $5 for children 3 to 12 years, $6 seniors and free for children under 2 years.
