Scottish Highland Games at Indian School Park

Scottish Highland Games at Indian School Park

For two days this weekend, a corner of Steele Indian School Park was transformed for the 47th Scottish Highland Games. Saint Andrew's Cross was flown, the sound of bagpipes filled the air, and many men in kilts could be seen wandering the park. Clans from across the state gathered to share their heritage, and spectators came to watch men and women toss cabers and throw hammers in the games. Featuring Scottish, Irish and Welsh song, dance, food and drink, the event was hosted by the Caledonian Society of Arizona.
