Welcome to the Sheep Festival oin Central Idaho!
Come in the middle of October to Central Idaho. There is a beautiful sheep festival every year in two beautful towns, Ketchum and Hailey, located in the mountains of Central Idaho. Below are the photographs from the last festival in October 2006. Three different ethnic groups are included in this photographs: Polish highlanders who live now in Chicago, state Alberta and Vancouver, the descendants of Basques from Boise region and also the group of shepherds from Peru. Here is the link to the official website of the festival: Trailing of the Sheep if you would like to check the details. The festival started in 1997. Since this time it is celebrated every year in October. The sheep parade is down Main Street Ketchum. We start with the photographs that show Polish mountaineers.
Please, check a wonderful book about Polish customs written by Sophie Hodorowicz Knab, Mary Anne Knab (Illustrator). It is entitled Polish Customs, Traditions and Folklore
I recommend a cookbook written by Marja Ochorowicz-Monatowa, entitled Polish Cookery
