Did you know that there is an Oregon tartan? You can see it and find out a whole lot more about all things Celtic at the High Desert Celtic Festival and Highland Games this weekend in Madras. "The State of Oregon kilt was actually designed here in Central Oregon. It was designed in 2003 and approved by the Tartan Board and by the State of Oregon. The Governor actually signed it, so it's the Official State Tartan. And the colors in it represent the deserts, the forests, the oceans, the rivers, the mountains, the volcanoes. It really has a lot of meaning in the colors and people can come and find out about it at the Celtic Festival." Debbie Faulkner says between 700 and a thousand people turn out for the games, music, food and camaraderie. The High Desert Celtic Festival and Highland Games is Saturday at the Jefferson country Fairgrounds; gates open at 9 a-m.
