Highland Games at Grandfather Mountain

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

GRANDFATHER MOUNTAIN, NC – The 56th Annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games will be held this year July 7-10. The Scottish Highland Games bring together Clans, families, visitors to celebrate the Scottish traditions of drumming, dancing, athletics and culture to provide scholarships for students to attend college.  The image seen here depicts the Sunday event, in which men from each Clan march in the parade.

July 10th at 8:30 am, Grandfather Mountain adds to the Highland Games with a Scottish Breakfast at Mildred’s Grill, with grilled tomatoes, sausage, beans, just to name a few delicious specialties.  Chelsea House Orchestra will perform afterward in the auditorium.
