Highland Games Bring Out the Scot in the Lot of Us by Ryan Smith
MARC DALMALDUR

Kilted or not, everyone can get a little (or, a lot) Scottish at the Highland Games on the green, rolling campus of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

From traditional Scottish fare to bagpipers and caber tosses, rugby tournaments, and (very) old-school heavy athletics, to free music workshops and live performances, the festival – now in its 22nd year — offers a spirited nod to all things Scottish.

As part of all that Scottish heritage and fanfare, this year’s Games also features regional and national Scottish fiddle championships, Celtic dance-offs, and even an all-new beer tasting event that puts a spotlight on some fine local breweries.

And yes, if you look around, there surely is haggis to be found.
