My sweet and I went out to the Williams Reindeer Farm in Palmer, Alaska this last weekend. We had never been to visit before, it was a great experience. “October Fun” is geared towards families with small children but, we are both just big kids at heart! ❤
The drive was nice. We don’t drive outside of town to often (even though we’d like too.) The trees are bare, and there is still no snow on the ground. Our winter is projected to be mild again this year. Driving on the Old Glenn Highway was a first time experience for me. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a two lane highway!
The farm had a pen where reindeer could be hand-fed but, most were full and completely uninterested in accepting any more pellets from the hundreds of people visiting. It was wonderful to see them so close. There were some beautiful racks on those reindeer. Reminded me of trees.
There was also live music, a gift shop with snacks and Husky burgers for sale. Face painting, a Spooky Walk (haunted house for kids) a bunny holding area, hay maze and more. It was a windy day but, gosh I had a darn good time! I will most likely use more of our photos in future posts. And, if you are wondering.. yes, I’ve eaten reindeer. It’s good. It’s usually mixed with ground beef and made into hot dogs or sausages.
