Bagpipes and Bonfires!!!!!

Mark your calendars! Bagpipes & Bonfires will be Saturday, September 23. Our biennial community event will feature Inside Straight Blues Band on the main stage. There will be games, food and beverages for sale, and the ever-popular kilt contest!

And watch for our juggling priest! He will kick off the event by lighting the bonfire at 5:30 while The Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band plays.
