WATCH: Sunnybrook Farm Museum in Red Deer welcomes spring

Sunnybrook Farm Museum is celebrating spring in Red Deer.

On Saturday, the museum welcomed the season with the arrival of baby animals, including goats, pigs and chickens during the Spring on the Farm event.

“Spring on the Farm is our first major fundraising event of the season. We open on May 1, but it takes us a couple weeks to get all the animals in,” said Ian Warwick, Sunnybrook executive director.

“All the animals that are here in our animal exhibit are actually in on loan from local farms, so thanks to some generous farmers in the region they come and spend the summer with us, and Red Deerians can enjoy baby animals right here in the middle of Red Deer.”
