If you ever had a desire to spend a night around llamas, your moment has arrived. Blackberry Creek Farm, an animal sanctuary in Colfax, is hosting its third annual Llamas and Pajamas event on Saturday, October 7. Humans are invited to slip into their sleepwear for this family-friendly gathering and take a tour of the sanctuary to meet its 75 residents, including llamas Ernie, Violet, Winifred and Llarry Pepperpants. Wind down in your nightgown for story time and a preview of a relevant book by Blackberry Creek executive director and co-founder Danielle Hanosh, What are Llamas For?, which is to be released next year. Then, relax in your robe under the stars to watch Charlotte’s Web with complimentary (and vegan, of course) popcorn and blackberry gelato, courtesy of Conscious Creamery and Blackberry Creek. Llamas in Pajamas is from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 1170 Pinecroft Road in Colfax. Llama lovers can snag tickets for $10-$15 at www.blackberrycreek.org.
