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.
