This Town In Idaho Holds A Parade For Sheep Every Year And It’s Just As Weird As It Sounds

Idaho has its fair share of quirky things about it. A museum dedicated to potatoes? Check. A hotel shaped like an actual dog? Check. One small town in Idaho is home to a festival that is basically a giant parade for sheep. Yes, you read that right. It sounds pretty weird at first, but the Trailing of the Sheep Festival is actually a huge event in Idaho that brings people from all over the country. The festival is a five day celebration of a hugely important part of Idaho’s economic history—sheep.
