Here’s the basic plan for our our Christmas celebration for 2022: A family friendly HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE at CKA from 12-4 pm for people to hang out by the bonfire; have some hot chocolate; maybe listen to some music (Celtic singers & musicians invited!!!);
Saturday, Dec 10 @ 12PM..
Celtic Knot Acres – Smithfield VA
14148 Carroll Bridge Rd., Smithfield
Maybe do some social dancing (Celtic dancers invited!!!); and buy Christmas trees, wreaths, ornaments, etc. from CKA. We will have an IAS Failte table there where we can do membership renewals, etc.
People can stop by the joint IAS & CKA Holiday Open House either before or after holiday sightseeing in charming downtown Smithfield, literally 3 minutes away by car. For restroom facilities, visit the clean & pleasant public restrooms on Main Street in Downtown Smithfield!
Then at 5:00 we will meet up at Wharf Hill Brewing Company in downtown Smithfield for a PUB NIGHT of dinner & drinks! Aimee’s husband Mark is best buddies with the owner, so we can reserve a table/area there. People will have to arrange designated drivers, obviously, if they are going to drink, but it is well worth going out there — Smithfield is especially BEAUTIFUL at Christmas time!!!
