Fleece Festival at Prospect Park Zoo

Event description: After a long winter, the sheep are ready to get their thick, wooly coats sheared. Shearing expert Don Kading will explain the process and answer visitor questions before giving the sheep their annual haircut.

On Sunday only from 1-4pm, join the parade from the zoo's barn to Prospect Park's Lefferts Historic House as the newly shorn fleece is transported to the farmhouse where visitors can learn the old fashioned way that wool is processed into yarn.
