Becky, just tell hubby, the Bethlehem Brewery is right next to the fest. He can make as many trips as he likes during the day. Then, he can hit the pool in the evening.

Thanks, I'll let him know that he can spend the whole day in the brewery. That should make him happy. tongue.gif

In between all the bathing and booze keep an ear open for King Chiaullee (Music Heads) from the Isle of Mann, they're a five piece band playing a mix of Celtic music.

The have played at L'orient and all the other festivals around the British Isles. This I believe is their first trip to the USA so give them a cheer please.

I don't know where you got that clock from but it's not the one I sent you. Mine says, It is 39 days, 13 hours, 50 minutes and 58 seconds until September 24, 2004. As of this moment.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the board, but I've been reading all your posts about the Celtic Classic, and just wanted to give you some pointers. I've been going to the fest for several years now and it is a total blast! It is free but you must buy tickets ($.50 each) to purchase food or drink which can get a bit expensive.

FYI, there is very little parking in Bethlehem. The city is on a hill, with the festival in the valley. All the streets around the festival are mainly residental with some small businesses, with bridges connecting the hills and over the Lehigh River. Parking is at a premium. If you look around in the neighborhoods, you will find small parking lots that charge $5-$10 for the day. Good luck finding parking on the street, where there are many 2 hour meters and not many free spaces. You can find free parking if you arrive early in the morning. (My suggestion). Remember it gets really, really crowded and might be difficult for you guys to find each other at the festival. I would carpool from the hotel, so you don't need as many parking spaces. Just remember where you've parked!! It is easy to wander around Bethlehem lost after several pints! And every hill looks the same!


The Bethlehem Brew Works is on the corner of Main and (I believe) Broad Streets. Really good food and some very interesting beers. (Mid price range). Donegal Square, a great celtic store, is down a few blocks on the opposite side of Main Street. Main street is loaded with venders, music and food not to mention some really neat shops. You can follow the crowd down into the festival from there. You can't miss it, huge striped tents all over the place, with the sounds of highland pipes rising up from the trees.
The music is fantastic, there's also Step and Highland Dancing Also, Highland games, and pipeband competions,(there is a fee to watch in the grandstand for these events but you might be able to get a good spot at the fence on the opposite side to watch for free). Wish I could go this year and meet you guys but my husband's band Barleyjuice is playing at Irish weekend in Wildwood, NJ. Another insanely crowded festival but lots of fun too!
I know you'll have a fantastic time, hopefully Barleyjuice will be playing there next year!!

Hope this helps a bit.
Cheers,
Nancy

Nancy,
Thanks for the awesome info. yes I wish you and your hubby's band will play there next year...we'd all love to meet with you.

Is there somewhere you can say would be a good general meeting place at the festival? Like a tower or clock or something that stands out?

Thanks for all the info, sorry we will miss you!

Has everyone decided on a place to meet. I'm just wondering in case we miss everyone at the hotel.

Oh I have found the most god awful pj's anyone has seen! I'm going to win this year!

Becky, what time are you planning on showing up for Saturday?? If you come early enough, you can bring your luggage in to one of our rooms and you can check in, later in the evening.

I believe that Eamon (Ed), will try to come on Friday, after he finishes with a meeting that he has to attend. He wants to hang out with us during the fest and afterwards, back at the hotel. He will not be staying at the hotel. He said, he will commute back and forth, since he doesn't live to far away.
