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. This was immediately followed by Scully, serving as Grand Marshal, leading the Leprechaun Parade of color guards, bagpipes, children, Irish wolfhounds and Gypsy Vanner horses, imported from Ireland.
