Alpaca Holiday Extravaganza

When: Nov. 19-20 2011

At last year's Alpaca Holiday Extravaganza, a co-worker and I spent about two hours (yes, really) cooing over a dozen of these gentle creatures. We also learned from their breeders that alpacas' wool is hypoallergenic (no lanolin); many of them hum when content; and they very rarely spit. We also wandered through the Black Forest Community Center (12530 Black Forest Road), picking out gifts made from alpaca fiber for friends and family. The free annual event happens again from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow, so you too can get your alpaca on. — Kirsten Akens
