Gatherin’ of the Clan 2013

After the success of our inaugural Gatherin’ of the Clan Contest last year, we are looking forward to even more families joining in the fun this year! It costs nothing to enter, and is as simple as stopping by the Information Booth to register your “Clan.”  After that, make sure any of your relatives that show up also stop by and add their names to your list!

Last year, the Byrne Family won with over 30 family members in attendance! Rumor has it they are planning on bringing even more with them this year!

The Sparta Celtic Fest is a great place to hold an impromptu Family Reunion! Hope to see you and yours this coming Saturday!
