Since 1988, exciting and educational weekend of Irish, Scottish and Welsh culture. With costumed dancers, live entertainment, food booths and more family fun. Come and watch as this year’s competitors perform feats of strength, speed, agility and skill which were once commonplace during the various fairs, clan gatherings, and tainchels, or great hunts, of medieval Scotland. The games feature events that have changed little since medieval times include lifting of heavy stone, throwing the hammer, and tossing of the caber. Lucky for us, the game of ‘twisting the four legs off a cow for which a fat sheep is offered as a prize no longer occurs in the more civilized programs of modern games. - - - - Parking Shuttle Address - 1525 Valley Center Parkway, Bethlehem, PA
