If you happen to see a lot of Celts in kilts in our area this weekend, you’re not missing a remake of ‘Braveheart’, but you could have some fun at the 3rd Annual Scotts Bluff Celtic Gathering at Five Rock Amphitheater.
The fun starts Friday night at 5 p.m. with music and the calling of the clans. Saturday, it’s a full day of events, including food, arts, vendors and Celtic skills demonstrated by the Ren Scots.
Gathering Coordinator Matt Rhys tells us you can also see a Highland Games Exhibition. “There’s weight for distance, weight over bar, sheaf toss,” says Rhys, “And we are going to be doing a stone throw. We’re going to having some experienced athletes and instructors come up and show people how it’s done, and demonstrate those different games.”
Admission to the three-day event ending Sunday is just five dollars for those 19 and over, with 18 and under free to attend.
