A weekend at the 2009 Scottish Highland Games – Las Vegas

Posted by Chris Paniagua

I spent the weekend at the annual Las Vegas Scottish Highland Games at Floyd Lamb park. Every year the community comes together to celebrate all things Scotland. As many as 10,000 people attend the festival, including families and representatives from many of the official clans of Scotland. You can also find many traditional vendors selling their wares.

For many the highlight of the event is the athletic competition. Young, Old, Professional, Amateur, Men and Women all compete in up to 5 traditional athletic events.

In the Food & Entertainment region of the park, you can sample dozens of choices of beers, whiskeys, ales, traditional meat pies, or Haggis.

The Annual Scottish Highland Games provide a great opportunity for Friends and Family to get together from all heritages, all nations to enjoy a cultural event that will provide you with lasting memories, a bit of history, and perhaps, a new perspective.
