Two contests were held as part of the festival’s “Celtic weekend,” including the “think you can jig” contest and another one designed for men in kilts.

King Henry of the festival said he has particularly enjoyed southwestern Pennsylvania.

“So far it’s been absolutely glorious. They’ve done a wonderful job here in Moorlandshire to make it ready for the royals to come through here,” he said.

The festival will continue through September and ends on Sept. 25.

Next weekend is children’s weekend.
