John and I were on our way to the Columbia Clock & Watch Museum on Saturday … and we made a slight detour to see the Falmouth Goat Races. I was there a few years ago myself; but since it was on the way ….

Though the goat races initially began as a bit of a joke between friends, they have been going strong at the same location for over 30 years. Falmouth and Bainbridge are very near the entrance to the Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant — so maybe there’s something in the water 🙂

In addition to several goat-racing heats throughout the afternoon, there are crafts, food vendors, pedal tractor races (and several other kiddie-related activities). So if you find yourself in South Central Pennsylvania next September and you enjoy a unique event … this one is for you! Visit the Falmouth Goat Race website for details and directions.

We couldn’t stay long on Saturday, but I did “visit” with some of the goats and we caught the second round qualifying races. Below are some of my favorite little guys … plus a short video of a few of the races.

This was my favorite goat of the day. She has ermine-like tufts of black hair
 

 
Check out the beard on this little dude!
