Scottish Games Come to Greenville

 Come on you lads and lasses out to the Scottish Games at Furman University this weekend. Though I have personally never been to this festival, but I have been other Scottish Festivals and I can say that this is an ideal family outing.

This is a five-day festival filled concentrated at Furman Univeristy but it also has other amazing and exciting events scattered in and around the Upstate.   The kick-off for the games was earlier tonight at Downtown Alive in Greenville with live music, dancing, food vendors, and more.  The Opening Ceremonies will commence Saturday morning on the Furman University campus.

For admission prices, schedule of events, and parking information visit their website at:

According to their website: "The Scots brought a lot more to America than just the bagpipes; they brought independence, a fierce fighting spirit, a strong love of family and clan, a quirky sense of humor and enjoyment in their surroundings.  We’re capturing all this and more with an overflowing series of activities bringing the best of Scotland and our rich Southern heritage together for your enjoyment."
Beginning tomorrow, I will begin my postings on what's there to do in the Upstate of SC this weekend.  Know of an event that you'd like to brag about? Forward it to me by the Sunday night before, and I will include it in my blog!!! Happy Blogging everyone!!!
