Celebrating camelids


Families wanting to take their younguns out of town this weekend can experience the world of alpacas at Alpaca Farm Days at Alpacas of Indian Point Hills in Menard County. Your kids can see an alpaca up close and pet one if they want. There will be children’s activities such as pin the tail on the alpaca, face painting, refreshments and a hand spinner spinning fiber. This is your chance to talk to the alpaca experts who can answer all your family’s questions. Hotdogs and chips available for purchase. You can also find products made using alpaca fiber in the farm store. Alpacas of Indian Point Hills is located north of Springfield and Athens and west of Route 29. More info can be found at
