Don Yer Tartans: 25th Annual Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival

Bagpipes, dancing, kilts and beyond. All things wonderful and beautiful and Celtic come together this weekend for the 25th Annual Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival. This year's celebration serves honorably as the location for the 13th Annual Masters World Championship for Highland games. Events include stone, weight and hammer throws, caber and sheaf tosses and other traditional feats of strength. There will also be Men's Pro Division rugby, a Celtic Sevens Rugby Tournament and youth rugby games. For those whose interests bear slightly on the less-violent side, music, dancing, shopping, food and drink will abound throughout the park, as well as celtic dog, pony and horse shows, herding demonstrations and an antique car show. Kids' activities include knight fights, pony rides, a mini caber toss and more. Don't miss this chance to celebrate all seven Celtic nations packed into two days of fun. One-day admission ranges from $7-$15 with two-day admission discounts available. Balloon Fiesta Park • Sat May 18 • 9 am-5 pm • $7-$20 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
