STILLMAN VALLEY (WIFR) -- It's not your typical festival, this weekend, several local alpaca farmers took part in National Alpaca Farm Days.

Alpaca breeders all across the country open up their farms so visitors can meet the animals, learn about the alpaca lifestyle, even pick up goods made from the coat of an alpaca.

Alpacas are typically known for their fluffy fine coats, they usually weigh around 200 pounds, and communicate by humming. There are 160,000 in the US.
