It was an Irish celebration Sunday in Boardman.

St. Luke Church held its First Annual Celtic Fest. The event included live Irish bands, different food vendors, which included some Irish favorites like corned beef and cabbage and even Irish clothing vendors.

Organizers plan to make the festival an annual event.

“For the last three years, there’s nothing been happening for the Iirish people,” said coordinator Bob Kelty. “So we figured we’d start an Irish event, see if we can get something going.”

The festival runs through 9:00 p.m. Sunday night.  Organizers expect about 1,000 people to come out for the event.
