Dust off your kilt, the 2011 Portland Highland Games takes place Saturday, July 16 at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham.
Yup, there’s a caber toss! Also a kilted mile, border collie demonstrations, a Regimental Drum Major Competition, and a broadsword demonstration.
Bagpipers, dancers, fiddlers, and drummers will also be competing and performing.
Shopping and food vendors, genealogy tips, and children’s games and activities are also part of the festivities – and of course don’t miss Mac’s Beer Garden!
The games open at 8am and go until 8:30pm. General admission at the gate is $20 for adults (18 and over), and $10 for kid (under 5 get in free!). Advance, discounted, tickets are available online, and at the Scottish Country Shop (1450 SE Powell Blvd). Visit the Portland Highland Games website for more details, including a full event schedule.
