Soapy Smith Duck and I, Zeb the Duck, went to a Celtic Festival.

Many of the Celtic clans had booths at this festival.

There was so much information!   This booth showed weapons used many years ago.

There are rifles, knives and amour. Humans could learn and practice sword fighting.   These people demonstrated how to correctly sword fight.

One stage had a sailor dance accompanied by a bagpipe.

We felt so Celtic!  The puppet show was fun.

We like Celtic festivals. Soon another group of bagpipe players and dancers were ready to perform.

The entertainers are very good.   Walking around the festival grounds,

we admired the merchandise for sale.

Then we found this American Bald Eagle and a barn owl from HawkQuest Raptor group.

These raptors, or birds of prey, are beautiful birds and fabulous hunters.   We were fortunate to see them so close.  Zeb and Soapy were fortunate not to be prey for the raptors.

We hope you visit a Celtic Festival near you.  The bagpipes have a distinctive sound and the dancers are so agile and energetic.   There was also a kid’s corner with inflatable entertainment.  And, mom had another funnel cake.  We hope to see you at a Celtic festival in the future.
