Come and join the family of Beau Fort around our hearth as we celebrate the Feast of Flames on the 15th, 16th and 17th of February, 2008.
This Celtic mid-Winter celebration symbolizing the first stirring of the Earth from its icy sleep. Because this day was primarily marked by the kindling of sacred fires, we invite you to join us on Friday night for the first ever Beau Fort "Flaming Lily Tournament," a torch lit tourney that fans the flames for Saturday's traditional Golden Lily Tournament. Prizes awarded to the winner of each contest.
Since Brigid symbolizes the fire of birth and healing, the fire of the forge, and the fire of poetic inspiration, many of Saturday's A&S classes and children's activities are theme related.
Celtic feasts were often extravagant affairs where one would indulge in their love of eating and drinking...this will be no different. We will also be taking a bit of a twist with the hall this year.
After feast, join the revelry (weather permitting) around the bonfire with dancing and drumming until the flames turn to ashes.
