Name one person who doesn't find llamas, which look uncannily like furry camels, to be irresistibly delightful? Enough said.

At the 16th annual Llama Fest, the whole family gets the rare chance to celebrate the versatile South American workhorse. Llamas, native to the modern-day countries of Peru, Chile and Bolivia, are adapted to the harsh climate of the Andes Mountains region. Revered by indigenous people, llamas are some of the oldest domesticated animals. They have been used as pack and guard animals and for clothing and food.

The Llama Fest celebrates the woolly member of the camel family in its cultural context. Enjoy live music performed by Alborada, Kausachun Peru, the Good Karma Blues Band and Center Stage Performing Arts; Andean crafts like jewelry, rugs and clothing; a baby llama corral; competitions and demonstrations featuring llamas; and authentic treats such as braised veggies with fried curd, empanadas and lemon mango drinks.

Llama Fest @ Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple, 8628 S. Main, Spanish Fork, 801-798-3559, July 17, 4 p.m., $3/adults; $1/children. UtahValleyLlamas.com
