Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — What a spectacular Celtic Fest weekend it was! People are still talking about the magnificent event, and the way hundreds of volunteers steered them easily through parking, shuttling and informational help. As a community, you can be very proud of the way you were represented to visitors from all over, including the shores of Scotland. Every year the Celtic experience becomes richer. I managed a few precious hours during the weekend to drink in the pageantry and pipes and it was the best medicine of all!
