San Antonio Highland Games

Do you love Scottish food? Do you want to learn more about the Scottish way of life? The San Antonio Highland Games is coming up this year in April. It will feature a variety of things from Scotland’s history and current social traditions. The event will be featuring a Celtic band, Needfire.

When: April 5th and 6th, 2008

Time: 10:00am – 9:00pm

Where: San Antonio, Texas

It is recommended you stay at the Motel 6 on Brandera Road. It is considered the official hotel for the Highland Games.

One of the unique things that will be at the Highland Games will be featuring the world’s largest living warhorse named Thor. You should definitely go if for no other reason than to see Thor. He is absolutely huge and seeing someone with a joust atop of him can make you realize just how entertaining jousting probably was during the medieval period.

What would be the reason to call it Highland Games without games? The San Antonio Highland Games features a Scottish competition each year. It is typically separated by weight class and it is required that you wear a kilt, highland hose, and the highland games t-shirt at all times throughout the competition. You are required to visit their website at http://www.sahga.org/athletics.html and turn in an release waiver.

There will be several vendors at the event. The Scottish have a vast history and with that comes lots of arts and crafts. You will be able to find handmade jewelry, antique Scottish memorabilia, and even stained glass artwork.

As mentioned above, there will be plenty of celebration through dancing and music. Several bands will be in attendance other than Needfire. Carl Peterson, Beyond the Pale, and Sally’s Garden’s are just a few that will be playing while you are able to swing your kilt around on the dance floor.
