A ribbon cutting, children’s parade, food, arts and crafts, bounce houses and musical acts brought hundreds of people to downtown Camden’s Rutledge Street for the Montessori School of Camden’s (MSC) first-ever Irish Fest on Saturday. Events kicked off a little after 11 a.m. with Camden Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford, former Mayor Tony Scully, Miss Camden Teen 2017 Garnet Robinson, Miss Camden 2017 Morgan Taylor Schoolfield and others cut a ceremonial ribbon to open the festivities.
