The Celtics Have Arrived

The rain may have canceled the Saline Celtic Parade this morning, but the skies had cleared in time for the Opening Ceremonies, one of my favorite aspects of the annual festival. Mayor Gretchen Driskell was carried in, following tradition. Festival Chairman Patrick Little also spoke as the pipe and drum bands performed. Among the amazing bands were the Michigan Scottish, Flint Scottish, Grand Rapids, Glen Erin, Shrine Highlanders, Caber Feidh and Ann Arbor, who performed throughout the day.

The day's events included a Maypole Dance, Kids' Celtic Games, Rubber Ducky Races, Sheep dog demonstration, jousting demonstration, and an array of entertainment acts, including Saline's own Fiddlers ReStrung, Tartanic, Rant Maggie Rant, Fior, Blue Caledonia and Eh?

It was another great day in Saline that cast Saline in a positive light for the world to see.

Check out our photos and video will be up soon on our Web site.
