First Annual Goat Parade (you read that right) in Sister Bay, WI

Ah, Sister Bay!  A Village known famously world-wide as the place with the goat palace:  Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant and Butik with their famous goats on the grass roof.  A visit to Door County is not complete without a trip to Al Johnson's

This year, Sister Bay promises some unusal entertainment in May with the first annual Parade of the Goats.  The Goat Parade will be held in downtown Sister Bay on Saturday, May 11 at 10:30 a.m. 

The parade will start on Mill Road and the goats will march to Al Johnson's on Bay Shore Drive, ending with the first-time-in-Sister Bay, Wisconsin2013 "Roofing of the Goats".

My personal affinity for goats?  One of my sisters kept goats as a project in high school (one was an adoptee from Al's, rejected by the mama goat), so I have direct knowledge of how entertaining they can be. They have distinct personalities.  Bob (pronounced"Baaaa-b") was a miniature billy goat, ornery and loud.  "Oreo" came from Al Johnson's farm, and was a tiny miniature (like many of the Al's goat family) named for her black and white coloring.  They were a lot of work, but a lot of fun.  They will eat virtually any plant (as the photo shows).

This first annual Goat Parade should not to be missed!  Bring your family, your camera, and your appetite, and stop in afterwards for some world famous pancakes and Swedish meatballs.  Enjoy the water view from the dining room.  Stop in the Butik for some great gifts from Door County with a Swedish theme.  If you won't be in Door County that weekend, you can check out the action on their website by going to the Goat Cam link after May 11th to see the goats on the roof.

First Annual Goat Parade (you read that right) in Sister Bay, Wisconsin this May.  Hope to see you on the 11th in downtown Sister Bay.

Welcome to Door County

Well your title got me, but I also had to read this because I love Door County. I grew up in Illinois. One year I did a bicycle tour of Door County. You live in a beautiful place. Now the goat parade sounds like something we would have in my little rural community of Cedaredge. I hope you post some pictures from it.

I'll be there with camera in hand.  The goat cam is actually pretty funny in the summertime.  Door County's number one tourism draw is the water, the second is the restaurant with the goats on the roof!

Hi MaryKay - That sounds like great fun. I got to know goats when I lived in a small village in South America - the goats ran free and would walk into our house whenever the door was open, just to check out what was going on. The females were gentle and affectionate, and climbed up on everything, including our roof and my car. They wre always good for entertainment, something we were a bit short on.

Dick, that is a great story.  Yes, they are funny little creatures--I don't know that I personally would ever have the patience to deal with one, but they certainly are entertaining.  Thanks for reading and have a great week.

Hi MaryKay, this sounds like a wonderful event, I will be tuning in to the goat cam to enjoy the antics of the goats on the roof.
