THIS SUNDAY 2ND OCTOBER 2016 will be the 20th Irish Woolfest in Boorowa.
From the website: http://www.irishwoolfest.com.au :
‘Everyone’s heard of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona but much closer to home in Boorowa, New South Wales you can enjoy the spectacle of the “Running of the Sheep”.
Beautiful woolly Merino sheep are shepherded down the road by Farmer Ashley on his four wheel motorbike and his trusty Kelpies who leap on and off the motorbikes and on and off the sheep’s back.
A magical free country Festival with a myriad of activities including wool and Irish, children’s fun, and a fine Boutique Market displaying Food, Wine and quality crafts.
THE RUNNING OF THE SHEEP COMMENCES AT 12 NOON!!!’
Following this is a Street Parade, Irish bands, and much more. It’s always a great day and I love the feet-stomping, thigh-clapping Irish music!
