Continuing a tradition of hosting area Irish festivals, the Irish American Society of County Will is planning the second annual Will County Celtic Fest on Saturday, September 29, at St. Joseph Park, Joliet. Activities will include a full day of top Irish entertainment, children's activities, great food and vendors. Admission is $5 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.
The Irish American Society of County Will originated in 1981. It has been responsible for Manhattan Irish Fest, the Irish Heritage Days in downtown Joliet in the 1980s, and countless other Irish events. In honor of its 30th anniversary, the society donated $30,000 last year to local reputable charities.
St. Joseph Park is on Theodore Street, east of Raynor Avenue. For more information, visit www.willcountycelticfest.com
