Roofing of the Goat Parade
June 9 @ 10:30 am
Parade begins at the corner of Mill Road and Highway 42 in downtown Sister Bay, and goes a trot, kick and a leap down the road to Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. The parade culminates with the roofing of the first goats of the season at Al Johnson’s (weather permitting – the goats don’t go on the roof in rain or snow). The Goat Parade will be followed by Al Johnson’s 3rd Annual Goat Fest, located at Stabbur Beer Garden (next to the restaurant). Goat Fest will feature all day festivities including: live music, kid’s games, various beverages, great food, and a Swedish Pancake Eating contest. Other businesses throughout town will also be celebrating with specials.
All goats are invited to participate in the parade! (please leash or harness goats) Goat costumes, Viking hats, and other creative endeavors are encouraged.
Purchase a sticker for the Goat Plop contest either day-of, or ahead of time at: Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant & Butik, Husby’s Food & Spirits, and the Sister Bay Visitor Center. If a goat poops on your mark, you’re entered to win a Fat Tire Cruiser Bicycle from New Belgium Brewery (bicycle donated by Flanigan Distributing and Husby’s). All proceeds go to Koinonia Kupboard at the First Baptist Church of Sister Bay! Donations of canned goods are also being collected.
