Rain or shine join the Celts in Chatham for a day of Irish and Scottish dancing, athletic competitions, food, music and more on May 18. Celtic bands from around the U.S. may participate in the Springfield area games, and those who have made the trip will march and play for audiences at massed band times at noon and 5:30 p.m. for opening and closing ceremonies. Organized by the St. Andrew Society of Central Illinois, more info can be found on their website at www.central-illinois-celts.org. The festival kicks off Friday night, May 17, 6-10 p.m. with Pub in the Park, a free evening of music featuring The Dave Littrell Band and at dusk the calling of the Highland clans and lighting ceremony.
