Brooklyn Park’s Spring Babies Opens
Organizer Bert Bouwman says people from the Twin Cities don’t get to experience new babies on the farm, so he’s bringing the babies to his field at Highway 169 and 109th Avenue. People can hold and pet farm babies out of the elements and under a tent at the Spring Babies Festival.
“The people from the cities don’t get to experience brand new baby animals,” says Bert Bouwman, the creator of the event. “We decided to bring them to the city and have people come and enjoy it.”
Get Up Close and Personal with Baby Animals
The Spring Babies event has been taking place in Brooklyn Park for 3 years. Families get up close and personal with animals they normally wouldn’t get the opportunity to hold.
“It’s like having a brand new baby,” added Bouwman. “There are no words for how it feels to hold them. It’s just a really fun experience to hold and be with a baby animal.”
The animals are under a tent so you won’t be exposed to the elements while you’re visiting with the critters. The cost is $10 for those ages two and up. Kids under two get in for free.
