Celtic Classic Festival This Weekend

Are you ready for the 2009 Celtic Classic Festival in downtown Bethlehem? From Friday, Sept. 25 through Sunday, Sept. 27, the Celtic Cultural Alliance will host traditional highland games, athletic competitions, Celtic music, dancing, crafts, and lots of food and beverages. You can even enter the haggis eating contest -- if you dare! Put on your kilt, grab your bagpipe and check out this fantastic local event.
