Every October we pilgrimage in our kilts and tartans to our beloved Stone Mountain Park for the annual Highland Games and all the Scottish festivities. This year’s event will be held on Oct. 14 – 16, 2016. Over the years, I have seen these games grow into one of largest Scottish heritage events in the United States. Don’t be fooled by the name though; there is so much more than just the traditional Scottish games, as if that were not enough!
