Oklahoma Celtic Festival this weekend,

which is where I spent most of the day. After I dragged my fat ass out of bed. I think this is the third year for it, and it's slowly growing. I think part of the problem causing slow growth is this is right in the middle of renaissance fair season for a lot of artists and performers, and they have multi-weekend contracts to perform/display. But it's a nice festival, with quite a few performers. Some of whom reminded me about the saying that 'bagpipes indoors are an offensive weapon'.

I'll post a few pictures later. 'Few' because I left the wrong chip in the camera, which means not many pictures.

Oh, and one of the food vendors is a area bakery, with damn good bread and meat pies.

The Scottish Festival was back in May, here. I love that stuff!!

Hey! Do you have your 'clan' badge? I bought mine last year and it is awesome! Can't wait to see the pics.

I think the Highland games are still at Loon Mountain here in NH. My blood lines run as far away from Scottish as one can get, but I LOVE going to that event; the games, the mountains, the food, and bagpipes being played in the great outdoors.

Funny, my cousin played pipes for a youth corps years ago. I used to go watch them practice in the local school gymnasium. 10-12 BEGINNERS with bagpipes!

One of the few things I miss whilst visiting the States is a good meat pie.
