Kicking off on September 15th, the Scottish Games are bound to leave a lasting image in your mind. A rather unique event, the Scottish Games feature a variety of activities that span several days. With the addition of live entertainment, the enjoyment factor can only go up. Designed with attendees of all ages in mind, there’s something for everyone!
The Scottish Games kick off with a Scotch Whiskey tasting at Gage Hall. On September 16th, the Tartan Ball offers a classy atmosphere with a live band and heavy hors d’oeuvres (which are reason enough to go if you ask us). After that, the real entertainment starts.
The piping and drumming competition is one of the largest in the southeast. When it comes to heavy athletics, no people perform quite like the Scottish. The sheaf toss, stone of strength, and caber toss will all be performed by both professionals and amateurs. Shortly after, Scottish dancing presents a different take on the culture.
Saturday brings the after-party and Sunday closes things out with the Kirkin o’ the Tartan. Rathkeltair and Carroll Brown will take the stage with live music straight out of Scottish culture through the Scottish Games.
There are games, crafts, and culture for children as well as an appearance by Ronald McDonald. Children will also be able to watch Border Collie demonstrations.
We here at Palmetto Ford encourage you to attend the Scottish Games in Charleston come this September!
