Those who enjoy western heritage celebrations might want to be in Cedar City Thursday through Sunday for the annual Cedar Livestock and Heritage Festival.
The event celebrates Iron County's long history with the livestock industry, especially sheep grazing in the area.
The highlight of the annual event comes Saturday act 10 a.m. with the annual Sheep Parade. The event includes the herding of 1,000 sheep down Cedar City's Main Street and includes historic sheep wagons, antique tractors and vintage cars. Parade goers are asked to leave their dogs at home.
Most of the events are free, though the opening event, Johnny Rodriguez in concert Thursday night at the Cedar City Heritage Center Theater, is $25.
