Crowds out for 19th annual Almonte Celtfest

Hundreds of people gathered in a sunny and very warm Gemmill Park for the first full day of Almonte Celtfest today.

Celtic-flavoured acts kept the crowd entertained through the afternoon, and a variety of vendors did a brisk business.

An unexpected visitor was His Excellency Dr. Ray Bassett, Ireland’s ambassador to Canada, who was attending in an unofficial capacity. He was persuaded to make some cordially-received remarks to the crowd.

The Mississippi Mills Fire Department sent along a pumper truck to help keep the kids cool with fountains of water.

Tonight’s lineup features headliners Steel City Rovers, The Peelers and The Dardanelles.

Sunday brings six acts to Gemmill, including Hadrian’s Wall and The Dardanelles, between noon and 6 p.m.
