WAYNESVILLE, Ohio -- The annual Celtic Festival brings Irish, Scottish and other historical flair back to Renaissance Park on Sunday for the third year in a row.

Jennifer Brough, Celtic Festival spokeswoman, said the festival will feature traditional and modern Celtic music.

One group performing is the Celtic-rock band The Elders. The band's performance at the festival is part of its farewell tour after almost 20 years together.

If you want a little more gritty experience, you can visit one of the military-style encampments.

The 42nd Royal Highlanders will have a Scottish military encampment on the grounds, and there will also be a Viking encampment with a "very large Viking ship," Brough said.

Meat pies and other Celtic food will be available to purchase on site to round out your festival experience.

The festival opens at noon and closes at 6 p.m. Sunday. Tickets can be purchased on the Celtic Festival's website here.
