Hey Kids! Come visit our “Celtic Cids” Activity Zone
By popular request, we are replacing the carnival with an activity area for our youngest guests! It will be chock-full of fun for the kids and easy on the pockets of their parents!
We’re expanding our menu! While we will still serve up the best corned beef sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs around, we’ve added some local food vendors to join us in our expanded Food Court!
