The Trailing of the Sheep Festival was just notified that America the Beautiful,
United States of America Destination Marketing Agency, named the event, One of the
Top 10 Events in Idaho. This latest award follows many others over the years including MSN Travel's One of the Top Ten Fall Festivals in the World and USA Today's One of the Top Ten Animal Festivals in the World.
America the Beautiful has a website filled with information about special American destinations, events and Festivals. The organization reaches people from around the world and encourages them to visit America.
"We're thrilled," says Mary Austin Crofts, Executive Director of the Festival. "It is gratifying to be recognized for the hard work by our staff and volunteers. Preserving the traditions of Idaho is an important part of people's lives here. It is why we're so proud to call Idaho home."
