For insurance reasons, this is a PRIVATE event not open to the general public. Details will be added/revised as we get closer to, but for now we can tell you the following:
🔥🔥🔥$1 nonrefundable advance only admission required for everyone PLUS $3 fee per PayPal order — plan ahead and have one person make the order so there is only one $3 PP fee charge for your group. Only IAS members who have paid their 2023 dues can order tickets — PayPal your total ticket order amount to IAS.Tidewater@gmail.com and in the PayPal NOTE make sure to list the first & last names of all the people you are buying tickets for so they go on the OFFICIAL GUEST LIST!!!
🔥🔥🔥The CKA gift shop will be open and among the items available for purchase will be seasonal crafts/decor, CKA gear, some of the new CKA candle range, s’more bags, and faerie accessories!
🔥🔥🔥Some CROSSROADS CEILI dancers will be at the bonfire, and we hope to perform several of the seasonal Irish ceili dances such as the FAERIE REEL, the SWEETS OF MAY, etc. We also plan to teach and lead all interested participants through the BONFIRE DANCE, the WALLS OF LIMERICK, the HAYMAKER’S JIG, and other fun Irish ceili dances if there is an interest. No experience required!!!
🔥🔥🔥We hope to have some of our musicians and singers there willing to perform their “party pieces” and/or get an impromptu session going!
🔥🔥🔥If you like, you can combine this evening event with a daytime visit to the historic and beautiful downtown Smithfield, just 3 minutes away by car! There are cute stores, restaurants, pubs, an ice cream shoppe, clean public bathrooms, and even a Celtic gift store all on Main Street!
