Panama City, FL –
BLOUNTSTOWN, Fla. (WMBB) – The Blountstown Rotary Club hosted the 36th Annual Goat Day on Saturday at Sam Atkins Park.
A day that generally brings together more than 5,000 people and gives back to the community.
“First of all, goat day is a pleasure to bring the children and have a good day with the family and come and see our goats. We love our goats. Goats are just goats, ”said Phyllis Bowman, a local resident.
Day of the Goat is a family event that everyone can enjoy.
All proceeds go to thousands of dollars in scholarships awarded to Calhoun County students that can be applied to a two-year college, four-year college, or even a business school.
The day included dozens of vendors, food, and of course plenty of goats to interact with.
“Goats make you happy. Watch their activity and they make you smile on the inside, ”Bowman said. “That’s why I love goats.”
One of the main events of the day is a goat show.
“Most of them win a ribbon, so it’s fun for the kids, fun for the goats, maybe,” Bowman said. “But it’s fun for me, I love seeing the children’s expressions, they’re having fun and it’s just very exciting.”
For some children, the goat show was a new experience.
“It’s exciting. It’s been a lot of fun, we all had a lot of fun,” said Ashley Knowles, a goat show attendee.
