Jousting has been one of the real hits with Berry Celtic Festival goers in recent years and is full of excitement, and the heavily armoured noble knights put on a great show for the crowd.
The Berry Celtic Festival stepped off at 9.30am with a Grand Street Parade of pipe bands marching in their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of all of the Clans, medieval knights, and Scottish Terrier dogs. The Parade started at Apex Park and proceeded down the main street of Berry and on to the Berry Showground where the rest of the day's activities were held.
The Festival built on a castle keep feel with the stalls, Scottish soldiers’ camp, Celtic musicians, the spinners and weavers, and artisans forming an avenue around the parade ground where the pipes and drum bands, knights on steeds, dancers and Scottish soldiers feature in the entertainment program.
Games, tea, coffee and scones, crafts, a steam engine, fiddles, kilts, long socks, sashes, feathers were all at the Berry Showground.
