Get your Scottish on at Edinboro's Highland Games by Ryan Smith

Kilt up if you wanna, or just come as you are.

Either way, come the end of summer and beginning of fall in Edinboro, everyone can turn a little (or a little more) Scottish for a good coupla days – if you go, that is, to the Highland Games at Edinboro University.

From traditional foods to bagpipers and caber tosses, rugby tournaments, and other heavy athletics, to free music workshops and live performances, the festival – Friday, Sept. 5 through Sunday, Sept. 7, and now in its 21st year — offers a spirited nod to all things Scottish.

Along with all that Scottish heritage and fanfare, this year's Games also features the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championships.

And yes, if you look around, there is haggis to be found. – Ryan Smith
