Millie the Mill Pond Monster, who will rise from the Saline River to delight festivalgoers at Friday and Saturday’s Saline Celtic Festival, was ‘born’ in 2002, when mechanical designer Jim Peters sketched out ideas on a bar napkin in the festival’s Pub Tent. Encouraged by then-Festival Chairman Patrick Little, Peters went on to construct a mechanical monster, 28 feet long and 7 feet high, at his Saline home.
