Our North Carolina State Representatives have entered two great Highland Games events this year!
They are both in May; the first one is in TWO WEEKS AWAY in NC on May 9th and 10th at the Bethabara Celtic Festival and Highland Games in the City of Winston-Salem, NC. This is as much a Celtic music festival as it is a Highland Games. The Games begin Friday evening with a Ceilidh around 6:30 p.m. - time approximate. The entry to the Games and the historical buildings on the grounds of Bethabara Park are FREE and the buildings will be open for touring, too. Sounds like fun and lots to do!! The address is 2147 Bethaba Rd., Winston-Salem, NC. Their Facebook page is Bethabara Celtic Festival and Highland Games, and the city's website: http://www.cityofws.org/departments/rec ... hlandgames
The second games are only THREE weeks away at the Smoky Mtn. Scottish Festival and Games from Fri.-Monday, May 16th-18th. They are in Maryville, TN, which is about 20 minutes south of Knoxville. These Games begin with a Gala on Friday evening, and feature many, many activities. From athletics, to pipes and drums, sheep dogs, entertainment, and even a dog show and parade, there will be something for everyone to do! The address at Maryville College is 502 E. Lamar Alexander Pkwy, Maryville, TN, 37804. Entry fee on Sat. is $18; and Sunday $13, or $25 for both by pre-ordering thru their website @ http://smokymountaingames.org/about.
Make your plans now to join us at either or both GAMES in May!
