Bayfield Heritage Day and Sheep Trailing is back after last year’s COVID shutdown. The celebration of local ranching heritage, community, and the changing of the seasons will be Saturday, Sept. 25, in downtown Bayfield.

Hundreds of sheep will come through town on the Buck Highway (County Road 521) at about 9 a.m. followed by a parade on Mill Street and activities in Joe Stephenson Park. There will be live music, vendors, craft demonstrations and kids’ activities. The Pine River Heritage Society museum will be open. All activities are free.

Hope Christian Academy will hold a 5k run in the morning. Registration is $20 in advance, $25 that morning. Contact Maggie at 759-2388.

Pine River Shares will host an Old Timers’ Picnic potluck from 1 to 3 p.m. in Eagle Park. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided.

Fireworks will be shot off at dusk from the south end of Joe Stephenson Park.
