Celtic Classic is the place for you. This year's event, which will run at the bottom of Main Street from September 23 to 25, 2011, features something new - a free iPad and iPhone application.
"This is our gift to Celtic Fest and the Bethlehem community," explained Doug Pelletier, President of Trifecta Technologies, at a September 14 news conference. It will include all the vendors, bands, video clips, a map and updated schedules. It can be downloaded either from the iTunes app store or by scanning QR codes that will be located throughout the festival.
Fest organizers will incorporate Twitter and Facebook contests. "All of these new social media features are designed to keep our guests informed with up-to-the minute festival happenings," explained Executive Director Jayne Recker.
"How do you fit the iPad in a kilt?" asked one reporter. "The Ipad's a little hard to fit in a kilt, but the iPhone is not so bad," answered Pelletier. He added, "The Irish are pretty smart. They'll figure out a way to do it."
