Friends of Heavener Runestone will step into the past again this weekend when the Viking-Celtic Festival returns to the park.
The two-day event will include live music, Viking re-enactors, birds of prey demonstrations, food and crafts from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The Royal Gauntlet Birds of Prey group will be on hand from noon-5 p.m. each day with two demonstrations and exotic birds in a conservation education program. Headquartered in Kellyville, the 30-year-old organization works to return sick and injured animals to the wild.
Viking re-enactors tentatively include Michal Carson from this area and Olaf and wife of Louisiana. The re-enactors set up authentic period camps, often with Icelandic sheep and Norwegian horses, and pratice combat under Viking rules.
The musical lineup includes Black Oak Sillelagh, a Celtic pub band from the Oklahoma City aea; Doug Russell, folk troubador from Stigler; Gatling and Hoffpauir, a country-folk duo from LeFlore County; and Bear Creek Troupe, a Celtic group from Tahlequah.
Admission if $5 per carload. Costumes and period dress are encouraged.
The festival is held every March and October.
