In addition to watching the dogs at work, attendees can stroll through the sheep camp and see the wagon exhibit. An opening ceremony/parade will be held on Saturday afternoon. Throughout the weekend, the town of Hotchkiss will be abuzz with activity, with yard sales dotting the streets. The Hotchkiss/Crawford Historical Society Museum will be free during the trials, as well. Breakfast will be held on Saturday at the Elks Club from 7-9 a.m. A Mother’s Day meal will be at the fire department will be held from 6-11 a.m. Sunday.
