Reno Celtic Celebration — Exploring Nevada
The Reno Celtic Celebration showcases games and other activities, costumes, critters, food and drink, music and dance from Ireland and Scotland, original home of the Celts.
The two day event in October had something to interest just about anyone whether they wanted to participate or just watch and enjoy.
The local chapter of The Empire of Chivalry and Steel (my daughter and son-in-law are members) was one of several Educational Re-enactment societies and groups in the Heritage Area. The Queens Guard could be seen roaming the festival grounds.
Vendors of Celtic goods and Celtic food and drink had their booths while a covered stage and seating area provided a venue to watch Irish and Scottish dance.
Visitors were encouraged to try their luck at Highland games like the caber toss and stone shot put.
