Listen to the Bag Pipe Bands, enjoy a cup of tea and a scone in the Tea Room, watch the dancers, watch the Heavy Athletic Competition (men and women in kilts throwing heavy stuff- think telephone poles) hear acoustic and celtic rock bands like Whiskey Galore, Wrenwood, Dublin Rain, and Ploughboys, visit the vendor building and buy a kilt, learn about your family in the Clan Tents, drink a pint or join the scotch tasting, sample Scottish Food (try a banger, meat pie, or haggis) and American Food, buy a raffle ticket or become a member of the Kern County Scottish Society, take the kids to the Children’s Glen and enjoy the petting zoo or get your face painted, enjoy the story teller, find Merida and take a picture together, or try the children’s heavy athletics area. Watch the Birds of Prey, Vikings, Herding Dogs, or Jousting Shows. There is something for every member of your family!
