Description: With bagpipes, caber tossing, and highland dancing, the Scottish Games is one of the highlights of the season. It is believed that the games were begun by the ancient highland chieftains to help them select the strongest men for their armies. The Long Island Scottish Clan MacDuff, co-host of the event, always provides lots of entertainment during this festival. Be sure to catch the Grand Opening Ceremony at 12:30pm as the bagpipers march down the North Lawn to open the games.
