Costumed alpacas sure to be a crowd pleaser

Four age groups (under 9 years old, 9-11 years old, 12–14 years old and 15-19 years old) will strut their stuff with their costumed alpacas in the show ring. Costumes will be judged on the comfort of the animal with foreign objects on their head, legs and feet, and how imaginative the costume is as well as the story each participant must write telling about the costume.

DENVER – Don’t miss your opportunity to witness an extremely unique (yet adorable) competition at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, March 16 at 2 p.m. An Alpaca Costume Contest will take place, and is open to the public free of charge

Four age groups (under 9 years old, 9-11 years old, 12–14 years old and 15-19 years old) will strut their stuff with their costumed alpacas in the show ring. Costumes will be judged on the comfort of the animal with foreign objects on their head, legs and feet, and how imaginative the costume is as well as the story each participant must write telling about the costume.

First through sixth place ribbons will be awarded to those with the highest points.

The Alpaca Costume Contest is part of the Alpaca Owners Association National Alpaca Show sponsored by Red Granite Ranch, a family-friendly event which draws hundreds of alpaca enthusiasts and fiber artists from across the country.
