This year I was able to go see the Highland Games in Warrensburg, Missouri, or as they call it “Highlands in the Burg.” I had never been to a Highland Games event before, and it was really impressive seeing what they could do! Above is the Sheaf Toss.
This is a baby Highland Cow. It was super adorable, and fluffy like a dog! I wanted to take it home with me.
Some of the clans brought weapons. I enjoyed this Lord of the Rings inspired sword.
He has his own dragon!
There was also live music at the event.
Women competed, too! This is the Stone Put.
Stone put, and a fluttering kilt!
This is the Weight Put. This shot makes me think “The hills are alive with the sound of music!”
This event is Weight for Height.
I thought the Wonder Woman shirt was particularly appropriate.
And finally, a parade! Always awesome to see someone playing the bagpipes.
