South Bend prepares for the Celtic Festival


Setup is underway in Howard Park for the 2013 Celtic Festival.  This years festival will feature border collie herding, Celtic food and beverages, historic story telling, and different musical acts.  The festival will also feature the Scottish Highland Athletics Invitational Competition.

Entertainment Chairman, Carol Meehan, believes people are drawn to the event because of the unusualness of things going on.  "It's like nothing you have seen, " Meehan said, "all of the stuff is just so foreign to us and the fact that you aren't allowed to throw unless you are wearing a kilt is kind of fun."

The event begins at 10am and admission is $5 or $10 per family.
