When: Sat., Sept. 17 2011
What: Americans have football. The Scottish have the Stone of Strength. We have Justin Timberlake. They have men in skirts. And we bet you didn’t think the Celtic culture got any cooler than Mumford & Sons, but you’re wrong. Join the Charleston Scots Society for their annual Scottish Games and Highland Gathering and find out even more reasons why the Scots are awesome. The Highland Formal on Friday will kick off the weekend with a reception to honor the sponsors. The games will begin Saturday, when amateurs and professionals will compete. The celebration continues with one of the Southeast’s largest piping and drumming competitions, followed by authentic Scottish Country and Highland dancing. There will also be Border Collie demonstrations, children’s activities, Scottish merchandise and cuisine, and many prizes to be won.
