Year of the Goat

Garbage eating Goat, Riverfront Park, Spokane

Children of all ages enjoy feeding the goat used napkins and other bits of trash.

Last summer, the City of Spokane marked the 40th birthday of our infamous garbage-eating goat. There was birthday cake served to the people who came to the party and a special beer served at the Irish pub across the street from the goat’s park home.

I have been remiss in sharing with you the interesting places we have here, so I will be making an effort in posting My Town Monday pieces on a semi-regular basis.  What better time than the lunar new year named for a goat?

Did you celebrate the lunar new year over the past two weeks?
