Mr. Pretty Legs brought the heat at the Saline Celtic Festival.
Highland Township resident Curtis Schmitt, a legitimate fire eater, earned the crown as the annual festival kicked off a Mill Pond Park Friday night. Schmitt wowed the judges when he crouched down, lifted his kilt to show some leg, and then produced a flame which traveled a few inches up his shin.
Schmitt is no stranger to fire. A performer with Ring of Steel, he later entertained the crowd with a fire-eating performance.
