LINCOLN — The 40th annual New Hampshire Highland Games and Festival is filling Loon Mountain with traditional dance, music and athletic competitions.
More than 60 clans are wearing their tartans as the Scottish festival continues with chock-full schedules Saturday and Sunday.
Scotland's cultural heritage is captured in living history encampments and the so-called Scottish heavy athletics involving hurling heavy objects, among other things.
Music competitions are will be held for players of bagpipes, harp, fiddle and drums and there are Highland dance competitions as well.
No Highlands festival would be complete without whiskey tastings and seminars on genealogy, Highlands dress and cooking and Celtic knot work.
The festival is organized by the New Hampshire Gathering of the Scottish Clans.
NH1's Jenna McNutt is at the festival and will be reporting on the event tonight on WBIN-TV starting at 10.
