It is midterms this week for Sophia and her midterm for her Humanities class was to attend a cultural event. It just so happens that the Celtic Fair fell on midterms week so we decided that would be the cultural event/experience she would use for her assignment.
This was supposed to be a Celtic Fair but it felt more like a Medieval fair. Most of the exhibits had nothing to do with scotland or Ireland. There were even some vikings there showing off their culture. And there was one group of people dressed up as fairys showing off exotic bugs. A bit of a mishmash of different things. I guess they are all related to the celts. I was just expecting a bit more Bagpipes and scottish dancing.
We did catch the end of one dance performance where they showed off a few scottish dances to the sounds of bagpipes but that was about the only 10 minutes of this event that really felt celtic. The kids all seemed to agree that this year was fun but not quite as good as when we came the year before.
It was an experience for me because I was the only adult that went with this group of kids. I had to keep track of all 8 and sometimes 9 of them (a friend tagged along with our group too).
Fun day, lots of sunshine and fresh air. Those are always good thing!
