Gather ye lads and lasses and head to Medici Grove (otherwise known as Middle Amana Park) for the 27th reunion of Celtic clans, sprawling over two weekends. Comedy, swordplay, music, magic and horseback jousting will abound. If coins are weighing down yer pouches, empty them at the marketplace or fill yer bellies at the royal food court — and if yer olde enough, swig some honey mead. But beware the Pirates of the Caribbean docking June 2 and 3.
