Happy birthday, Land of Little Horses! Today, April 17, marks the popular farm park’s 45 year as a mainstay attraction in the greater Gettysburg area. To mark the occasion they’re throwing a special birthday party celebration.
The birthday celebration will take place today from noon to 4 p.m. At this time, visitors to the park will get to share in the special day with all the ongoing festivities, including the enjoyment of a piece of carrot cake, which will be served in honor of the occasion.
Regular daily events scheduled on Sundays will take place accordingly, beginning with the ever-popular Performing Animal Show at 12:30 p.m., which will take place inside the onsite arena. Other events will include Brushes or Bubbles, which allows you to take part in the hands-on grooming activities of brushing and bathing horses; Close Encounters, where visitors can get up close and personal with the famed “little horses” and other animal friends, and the daily Herd Release (weather and other conditions permitting). You can read about the farm park’s daily schedule of events here.
