October equals kilt weather (usually), so don your best Celtic duds and head to Summit Park in Blue Ash for the annual Cincinnati Celtic Festival.
This weekend-long celebration, presented by the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick Foundation, features live Irish music all weekend — including a handful of pipes and drum bands — plus food, beer and games like a haggis toss and a Bonnie Knee contest to see which man in a kilt has the most attractive knees.
The opening ceremony kicks off the events at noon on Saturday, with an Irish brunch at Brown Dog Cafe from 8:30 a.m.-noon Sunday and a 10 a.m. mass.
Noon Saturday; 10 a.m. mass Sunday. Free admission. Summit Park, 4335 Glendale Milford Road, Blue Ash, cincinnaticelticfest.com.
