Scottish Kilts & Bagpipe


This weekend grab your kilt, your drum and even your bagpipes if you’ve got ’em.  The Virginia Scottish Games and Festival will be held on Sept. 3-4th in The Plains, Virginia.  Kids can participate in the games in categories such as brick throwing, bale tossing and the “caber” toss (a hollow cardboard tube).    There are Celtic fiddle competitions, track & field events and dueling sword players!  Sounds like a great weekend for everyone.  Here’s a picture from last year’s event in the children’s brick throwing competition.    What a way to introduce your clan to a little Scottish heritage!


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
