KETCHUM, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Day Trippin brought to you by Jack’s Tire and Oil and Let’s Ride Suzuki.

On this week’s Day Trippin’, it’s the Trailing of the Sheep Festival in the Wood River Valley. This is wild, woolly and wonderfully authentic.
On Oct. 5-9, you are invited to celebrate the 20th year of a unique cultural festival.

Each fall, the popular trailing of the sheep celebrates the over 150 year tradition of moving sheep from high mountain summer pastures down through the valley to traditional winter grazing and lambing areas in the south.

The five-day festival includes nonstop activities in multiple venues, history, folk and traditional arts, a sheep folklife fair, a fiber festival and always the popular parade with at least 1,500 sheep to hoof it down Main Street in Ketchum.

There will be dancing, singing, music and food honoring the tradition of welcoming fathers, brothers, sons and family home from a long summer of grazing in the mountains. This is an event you won’t want to miss! It’s October 5-9 in the Wood River Valley.

That’s this week’s Day Trippin'.
