Looking back, it seems the last time I wrote about CelticFest was in 2007 so I’m not sure what happened in 2008 but it may have involved a kilt and several pints of Guinness.
The official kick off to this multi-day event was on Wednesday but there’s more in store this weekend including the parade on Sunday, March 15th @ 11:30am downtown.
There will also be free entertainment on the Market Stage from 10:00am on Sunday, and the Celtic Village at the art gallery which will be filled with entertainment (including fun for the kiddies) on throughout both Saturday and Sunday.
Street closures: 8:30 am and 2:00 pm – Alberni St from Cardero to Jervis, Broughton St from Robson to W. Georgia, Nicola St from Robson to W. Georgia. 10:00 am – 2:00 pm – Howe St from W. Georgia to Nelson 10:00 am – 2:00 pm – Parade Route, West Georgia from Broughton to Howe St. There will also be rerouting of buses.
