Fairies, wizards and Highland heavyweights of all clans gathered July 20-21 at Casey Jones Park for the Elizabeth Celtic Festival. For more than two decades, the annual event celebrating all things Gealic took place in Elizabeth, aimed at highlighting the rich traditions and influence of Scottish and Irish immigrants in the area. Along with traditional food, a homebrew competition and folk dancing, visitors also enjoyed taking in the Scottish Highland games, including centuries-old sports such as the caber toss and stone put.
