Scottish and Celtic Festival

The Scottish and Celtic Festival was Saturday here in Bridgeport. We heard it was supposed to be a pretty big festival, so we headed out with some friends. It wasn't as small as Cajun Fest 2008 but it didn't compare to the festivals in St. Joe either. At least, it was something fun to do for the afternoon. Here's some pics from the fest, enjoy!

There were tons of bag-pipers walking around. Not really my taste of music, but they were talented, none the less.

This is some manly was a huge weight they threw. They had a bunch of manly contests- just like Made of Honor (if you haven't seen it, you should rent it!). It totally makes sense that they have to have these crazy contests.....I think it balances out the fact that they're wearing skirts.....But I have to say, I really like the twirling action!

Watching the dog agility show. At least Sarah and I are looking at the camera! This is the group of friends that we hang out with here.....however we need to get a better picture of us all!

One of the dogs doing the agility course. They were really smart dogs!

They also had a show with hearding dogs. These dogs were so smart! they would do exactly what the guy said (or whistled), and the made the sheeps go where ever they pushed. The dogs also hearded a group of was so fun to watch!

We followed up the festival with a trip to Coldstone Creamery and dinner at Texas Roadhouse. Overall, it was a fun day, even if it was a small festival.
