Highland Games, are a unique mix of the sporting, the cultural and the social. They usually comprise a program of field and track events, piping and Highland dancing competitions and 'heavy events' like the tug-o-war, the hammer throw and the caber toss.
It is thought that Highland games originated from Scottish clans competing against each other in various sporting events, with clan chiefs selecting their strongest, fastest, fittest and most entertaining men to represent the clan. The Scottish Games in the United States have grown because many people of Scottish descent still feel the pull of their ancestral homeland and heritage. The Games provide a connection to that heritage. For many, going to the Games is like going home to a family reunion.
