BOOROWA HOTEL IRISH WOOLFEST SUNDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2014

PROUDLY SPONSORED BY BOOROWA HOTEL

Everyone’s heard of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona but much closer to home in Boorowa, New South Wales you can enjoy the spectacle of the “Running of the Sheep”.  

Beautiful woolly Merino sheep are shepherded down the road by Farmer Ashley on his four wheel motorbike and his trusty Kelpies who leap on and off the motorbikes and on and off the sheeps back.

A magical free country Festival with a myriad of activities including wool and Irish, children’s fun, and a fine Boutique Market displaying Food, Wine and quality crafts.

THE RUNNING OF THE SHEEP COMMENCES AT 12PM!
