Bethlehem’s 29th Annual Celtic Classic is Underway

In Bethlehem, the Fall Classic doesn’t happen in October, and it does not involve bats, gloves, and pinstripes. Instead, it occurs as soon as the new season kicks off, and the participants in this event are clad in plaid kilts as far as the eye can see.

Sure, it may not feel too much like fall — in fact, the weather on Friday hearkened us back to an earlier festival¬†— but one thing is unmistakable: this year’s Celtic Classic has arrived.

The Celtic Cultural Alliance’s flagship event is a sure-fire hit every September, featuring, among other things, internationally-renowned musicians, authentic Celtic cuisine, tons of unique vendors¬†and, of course, the annual U.S. Highland Games Championship. It goes all weekend, continuing today and lasting into the night with live music on Sunday.

LVU was on-hand Friday evening to capture some of the early action, both in photos and on Facebook Live. Take a look below, and make sure you stop by this weekend!
