25th Annual Celtic Classic

Today we attended the 25th Anniversary of the Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival in Bethlehem, PA. This is an extremely large yearly celebration held on the last weekend of September.

This event has authentic Irish and Scottish cuisine, music, entertainment and games.  They hold bagpipe competitions in the street and field, and Drum Major constests (kilts in toe) with contestants from all over ...

These guys are called, "Dark Rose" and hail from New York

Exciting live Celtic music!
River Dancing!
Stone Tossing in the sports arena
A Drum Major throwing his baton high in the air! He caught it!
Participants of all ages got into the spirit!
Dozens of cool venders
A police officer all dressed up and posing pretty for the camera!
And, of course, I couldn't resist picking up these little beauties! It is "The Four Seasons of Green Man." I orderd the other two for the set from the vender who just happenes to live a mile away from us ...
Hubby also surprised me with this gorgeous sitting mermaid for the house. I just love her! ...
We had such a great time and I took the pics with the new Fuji Digital camera that hubby gave me for our wedding anniversary. I got him a very large, heavy crystal mug from "Things Remembered" with his name engraved on a silver plate.
Tomorrow is the last day of my week's vacation and I will be cleaning much of the day.  I also found out just last night that I was the winnner of Sandy Sandy's awesome Fall Giveaway as well as winning a wonderful piece from Stacy from her blog MagicLoveCrow!  Whoo hoo! I am so excited about the beautiful artwork I will be receiving in the mail from these very talented artists! All in all, it's been a pretty great time off for me. I could get used to this! LOL!
