Maine Celtic Celebration


BELFAST - This weekend is all about embracing heritage in one coastal Maine city. We traveled to Belfast to learn more about the Celtic Celebration.

A celebration of people, music, food, dancing, even dogs. And the finest showcase of kilts around.


Volunteer organizer, Diane Braybrook said, "People are now coming just to go to the festival. And of course that spreads out into the community. The restaurants are booming, there were people around, so it brings a lot of people to Belfast and then they discover what a terrific place this is."


Hundreds of people embodying the likes of the Scots-Irish in no other place then where it all began.
