Benefiting SPCA
Continued this year! During all scheduled performances, a percentage of food and drink sales will benefit SPCA of Winchester, Frederick, and Clarke Counties.

Celtic Games for Children
SPCA will host Celtic games for children on the Old Courthouse lawn. The Celtic games will provide fun in a non-competitive atmosphere for lads and lassies ages 3-12.

Other Fun Activities

A balloon artist, face painter, dancers, vendors, and bagpipers will be on the Loudoun Street Mall and in Old Town shops and restaurants throughout the day. Enjoy fresh Kettle Corn and have your photo taken Celtic style, in a free photo booth. There will also be alpacas on the Old Courthouse Lawn!

Back by popular demand this year, the Magic Lantern Theater and Handley Library will co-sponsor a 2pm showing of the movie “Waking Ned Devine”. A sly Irish comedy about a lottery winner dying of shock in a small Ireland town and his fellow townsfolk attempting to claim the money.
