It was bitter cold outside and so windy the doors of the Valley Forge Casino and Resort sometimes opened by themselves, but inside the music–equal parts Scottish and Irish–kept everyone warm and snug and happy. Every years, Bill and Karen Reid’s Midwinter Scottish and Irish Festival provides a welcome respite for those who love Celtic culture and hate Arctic weather.

There were lines for beer and lines for haggis, the fish and chips ran out by early afternoon, and more than a few people were getting measured for kilts (at more than $400 a pop!).
