Latta Celtic Festival Held in Huntersville

For the third year, the Latta Plantation held the Latta Celtic Festival.

The festival featured live music, historic demonstrations and weaponry.

Organizers say the festival was a way to celebrate Celtic culture during the St. Patrick's Day weekend.

People who went say the festival allowed people to learn more about ancestral arts and crafts.

"We don't have to be dependent on stores or manufacturers to make things we use every day," Stephen Martin said. "You can make stuff from trees and limbs."

On Tuesday there will be a St. Patrick's Day Festival in Rock Hill on Main Street.
