Second Goat Derby brought laughter and enjoyment

In recognition of the Kentucky Derby, Richfield Heritage Preserve conducted its second Goat Derby on May 4. In spite of some rainy periods, about 700 people attended and wagered on goats, enjoyed live music, food trucks, raffles and a craft fair. The event raised about $9,000 for the park.  ∞
