It was a cold and windy day, last Saturday for Gobbler’s Knob visitors, but that didn’t stop both out-of-towners and locals from passing through Barclay Square and checking out the numerous attractions.

One of the attractions this year was the Shaggy Mountain Petting Zoo — a traveling petting zoo from Central Pennsylvania.

This year, it brought a variety of animals to help celebrate Groundhog Day, including boer goats, purebred chickens and ducks.

Pictured (from left) are: Shaggy Mountain owner Jason Shiring holding one of his purebred chickens for visitors; Stacy Riggie; and her daughter Taylor DeRalph, who visited the petting zoo.
