Monday, July 27, 2009
Today, I am posting information about The Highland Games in Edinburgh on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th. It was really amazing. The Highland Games are events held throughout in Scotland, once a years to celebrate Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage. During this event you have :
- Highland Games combine athletic and sports competitions. This includes Caber tossing and hammer throwing.
- Music: the pipe bands is one of the most memorable things during the Highland Games , the music of the bagpipe which is today the symbol of the games. Other musical instruments include the flute.
- Dance: There are two basic forms of dancing at modern Highland Games gatherings, Scottish country dancing which is like ballroom dancing and Highland dancing which is referred to a style of athletic solo dancing.
- Clan Village: You can find people who have the same name and keep in touch.
Then, you have a lot of activities for children and also you can discover the Scottish foods throughout the food stand.
The atmosphere was really fantastic,
