Shenanigans and Hooligans Celtic Festival Highlights Part 2

(some duplication from previous post may exist! LOL- we TIRED!!0


Thanks to everyone who came out to our inaugural festival!!!

It only took 3 years to get our first Fest from table to reality (thanks Covid and Hurricane Ida!), but everyone who came out agreed it was worth the wait! If you missed it, be sure to mark your calendars for next year- September 23rd!



It wouldn't be a KoE Fest without the Kilts of Many Colors!




People came from all over- inclusing surrounding states!!!



Smithfield Fair- celebrating 50 years in the music business this year!



44 vendors for shopping delights!



The brave Men in Kilts 80s Dance off comntestants! if you missed this contest- you've gotta check out the videos on our faceobook page and be there for next year's contest!



From Celts to Pirates, our Tangi Royalty was well represented! Rickey Pittman not only sang, he gave a great workshop on Celtic Folklore!



Can you believe they came down for a few hours BEFORE his wedding? THAT'S dedication and they aren't even KoE members! THANK YOU GUYS!!!
Thanks Damien for getting their photo/story! 



We LOVE that we are able to have a multi-generational event!



When your drumming workshop turns into a jam session, all is right with the world!




Speaking of weddings, master kilt maker Casey was sewing like crazy finishing a wedding kilt that was needed for THAT night! Hope you caught just what it takes to put a kilt together! She truly IS an artist!



Our Kids Princess Merida Character contest was charming!



Only at a KoE event can you meet the first FEMALE Chief Judge for Tangi! 
KoE Member judge Brenda B Ricks was thrilled to meet with our visiting royalty and show them what female leadership can be about!



Our kids zone was also a hit- thanks to the PHS Beta volunteers- they stayed all day and where a blessing!


Yes, you can catch a cabbage at a Celtic fest, when the irish parade rolls thru! LOL
our visiting royalty had fun handing out veggies from our mini cart, and showing everyone what out March St Patrick Parade is like!



We were happy to name the stage in memory of Myra and Galusha March, who were so instrumental in helping us to get the Fest started! 



Founding members were thrilled to be able to come out and see how far KoE has come from a small get together of friends, to a parade and now full fledged LAFF Festival! 
Dreams DO come true!


Thanks to the hardest working group of KoE Board members and volunteers, who not only got the festival planned, but got sponsors and helped the Festival go on all day! GREAT JOB all of you!
