I'm hoping to be there. It was so much fun last year even without the games and with the 95 weather. Don't think I'm going in garb like I did last year though. Even in a great kilt I was sweating buckets. The Elizabethan rennies must have been dying. I'll stick with my AmeriKilt.

And we're meeting up with some friends from the BoTK, too.

We'll save yuh some haggis, m'friend...I hope the weather is better down there on Saturday than it was in Upper Marlboro last Sunday. Those were some very hot (in more ways than one) faeries at that fest.

The parents are in town and this is the perfect thing to do with them.  Thank you for the reminder of the Celtic fest.

Looks like I'll be there with a friend in tow.

Doubt I'll go in garb, though. :)

Actually, the really agravating scheduling puzzle was when they made it only a 1-day festival, instead of having it over a weekend.

I'm with you on this one - with all the business that got over a two day period I could not understand why the conversion to one day for the past two years. Damn the bad luck!

A marvelous time was had by all, afternoon storm and all...and, it was worth it all on Saturday, speaking as an old trombone guy, to see Coyote Run with all FOUR trombones up on stage at the same time...can't beat a celtic band with four 'bones....'ceptin' maybe one with a didgeridoo...oh, wait, as you can see, they have a didge as well...

BONUS: Got to see beautiful Analise there...
