Fun at the Celtic Highland Games

There are lots of tents, though none as fancy as this one, representing local clans.

Some local kids engaged in battle.
Lots of people come fully decked out in costume.

The under 12 set had their own field.
We look forward to seeing the Irish Wolfhounds every year. They’ve been coming to the Games since they were puppies. This is the male.

Madame C and her lads and daughter, along with yours truly and my two spawn went on our annual pilgrimage to the Celtic Highland Games held in our town. Since we went late on the second day we unfortunately missed a lot of the good stuff, but the kids still had a blast. My youngest is terribly sore today since he spent at least two hours battling with his buddies.
