Last week I headed to Stone Mountain to check out the Highland Games and boy was I in for a surprise! It was the perfect setting for the 39th annual Celtic competition and such a gorgeous day. The festivities were complete with kilts, bagpipes, pipe bands, and athletics. What is there not to love?
Not only do the games celebrate the coming together of individuals of Scottish ancestry and keep the Celtic heritage strong, but the event is about everyone enjoying themselves and having a great time!
Being of Celtic ancestry this was especially fun for me and the music sent shivers down my spine. With 29 bands from across the country, I’ll have to brush up on my bagpipes before next year!Tags: bag pipes, comedy, Conn, Conn Jackson, Connected, entertainment, fun, Games, Get, get connected, hammer, hammer throw, Highland, Highland Games, hilarious, interview, Jackson, kilt, Scotland, Scottish, television, TV
