Camels, Sheep and a Donkey (oh my!)

November 10, 2011

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular kicks off its annual run of 200+ performances tomorrow here in New York City. The Christmas Spectacular is best known for its high-kicking Rockettes, but what’s a hit show without a supporting cast? In addition to its ensemble cast of human dancers and vocalists, the show features a nativity scene with live animals. I was at Radio City Music Hall last month when three camels, two sheep and a donkey from a farm in upstate New York moved in for the season. Photos ¬©Madison Square Garden, L.P.

      Yeah, isn’t the sheep in the last pic adorable? I want him as a pet.
