What to do in Saline in This Week - It's Celtic Festival Week!


It's Independence Day week in Saline. No, there's not a community fireworks show this year. But look up, you'll see some shot around the neighborhood as America celebrates its birthday.

It's also Saline Celtic Festival weekend. You've probably heard by now that the festival has moved from Mill Pond Park to the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds.


13 events this week on our calendar: Tuesday, Jul 4 - Monday, Jul 10
