Pipes and Drums from the United States and Canada entertained the crowds at the Third Annual Scottish Irish Festival this weekend.

The Mass Band provided the music for the Grand Entry of the Clans at noon Saturday.

After that, the bands competed for individual honors as the appreciative crowds watched and applauded.

The forest fire smoke in the valley was barely noticed under the lofty trees at the Daly Mansion Grounds. The food vendors sold everything from meat pies to BBQ to authentic Butte pasties. Adult beverages were offered, along with lots of water and other drinks to stay hydrated on the hot days.

Friday started the event with a Ceilidh and music from the Irish rock band, the Voodoos. Saturday were the Highland dance and Irish dance competitions, the professional athletics, and pipe and drum competition. Sunday is set aside for the Kirkan O’ the Taran and children’s and amateur athletics.
