The Mid-Maryland Festival day started off bright and sunny. There were lots of people and the advance ticket sales were impressive. Around 2:00 pm, the gusts of wind blew in and then came the rain! People headed towards the music tents for shelter. About an hour later, the rain stopped… but the winds began to increase. There were still “hale and hearty” festival attendees browsing through the various merchandise tents after the rain. We had several people buy tartan serapes to wrap themselves in style and warmth. The wind did pick up more and some tents tumbled. It was a fun day…but you were really reminded that Mother Nature rules the outside events.
So come to the Celtic Festivals prepared ( ready for rain or shine) and keep a close eye on Mother Nature’s activities. See you at the Smoky Mountain Highland Games!
