Bring your family and friends for a charming Scottish day-adventure full of entertainment, feats of triumph, and fun activities. Enjoy the traditional features of Scottish Highland Games, such as massed bands, pipe band exhibitions, individual piping, heavy athletics, highland dancing, and children�s games, including �Shoot the English Knight�! Performances of Scottish country dancing and Celtic bands provide delight all day. Take old-fashioned pleasure in viewing the �hielan� coos� (highland cattle); sheepdog and blacksmith demonstrations; tug of war competitions; and reenactment exhibitions throughout the day. Visit each clan tent to discover whether you have Scottish ancestry and shop at the Scottish and Celtic merchant booths. Visit the British Car exhibit and see great examples of 1959,1961,1963 and 1967 Austin-Healey 3000s; 1950, 1965 and XJ6 Jaguars; 1970 and 1978 Austin Minis; 1953 MGTD; and 1969 and 1978 MGBs. This is a special treat for auto lovers. As in the past, we continue to keep the admission prices reasonable in keeping with our commitment to making the Spokane Highland Games a family event. In keeping with that goal, you�ll notice that this year the parking is Free!
