BELGRADE - The Yellowstone Alpaca Breeders Association hosted its first Alpaca Shearing Festival on Saturday.
People were invited to watch and learn at the Circle L Arena in Belgrade as the organization hosted the only event of its kind in southwest Montana.
Spectators got to watch alpacas get their annual ‘haircut' (shearing) and navigate through an obstacle course, and also watched people spin alpaca yarn by hand.
Alpacas, alpaca yarn, textiles, and apparel were also available for sale.
