SPOOKY LLAMA TRAILS & TALES

A TENNESSEE FALL TRADITION

 “Spooky Llama Trails & Tales” is a storytelling / musical hayride through a llama farm that started in 2010 on Walnut Ridge Llama Farm. The idea was to provide a family friendly “spooky” fall event that was appropriate for all ages. Visitors were taken on a hayride through a pasture of over 50 llamas, and then entered the woods with spooky interactive scenes of a Wendigo cave, a wood hag, scarecrow, Hocus Pocus witches, and much more. We discontinued the event in 2016 for two years to focus our time building the new “Lazy Llama Campground” on the farm.  We renewed the event in partnership with the Chuckey Ruritan Club in 2018 to help raise money for Ruritan activities in support of the community.

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN CAMP

A Native American Indian group called the East Tennessee Overhill Intertribal Descendants, promote "pow-wows" to educate the public about Indian customs and the ways of their ancestors.  The group camp on the farm each year to be part of our community event.  They provide an 18' Native American Tee Pee, dancing, arts & crafts, and storytelling.
