Highland Games bring a wee bit of Scotland to Modesto

Tuolumne River Regional Park felt a wee bit like Scotland with competitors tossing the caber and putting the stone at the Modesto Scottish Highland Games & Gathering of the Clans on Saturday.

Tuolumne River Regional Park felt a wee bit like Scotland with competitors tossing the caber and putting the stone at the Modesto Scottish Highland Games & Gathering of the Clans on Saturday.

The 33rd annual family festival brought together Scottish, Irish, Cornish, Norwegian and Welsh cultures for a day of music, Celtic merchandise, Renaissance re-enactors, children’s activities and more. Commonly known as Highland Games because they began in the highlands of Scotland, the competition features a day of heavy-duty athleticism. For those who don’t belong to a clan, it was a chance to be Scottish for a day.
