festival, you will see some of the best Athletic Games, hear some enlightening
Genealogy research training, eat some of the best traditional Celtic food, and
visit some of the finest Vendors of Celtic items and Clans than anywhere in the
state. Hope you got to hear and see the non-stop entertainment of Bagpipes,
Celtic Bands and Celtic Dancers perform. We got to see Clydesdale Horses, lots
of other animals. There was something enjoyable for every member of the
family, and that's exactly what we wanted. So plan now to come out to the 2010
Iron Thistle in Yukon, Oklahoma.
A Wonderful Location, plenty of
parking, and superb festival grounds. Click on:

Westie Dogs, Clydesdale horses, and all day Highland Athletic Games. There was
