2010 heralds the 33rd Anniversary for Williamsburg Scottish Festival (WSF)! Since 1977, the festival have provided Williamsburg, Richmond and Tidewater surrounding area residents with fun and safe venues and activities in which to experience Scottish culture and history. WSF 2010 promises to be even more extraordinary than previous years.
Activities include live entertainment, competitions, Scottish country dancing, and raffle. There is a lot for kids to do too.
The Festival’s Children’s Games are held Saturday afternoon. They are modeled after the adult Highland Games, and are open to children 15 years old, and younger. The Festival program will provide information regarding times and locations for the Children’s Games. Children may compete in several events within their age bracket: 5 and under, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11 and 12 and older. The events include foot races, bale toss, shot-put (brick throwing), discus (Frisbee), and the “caber” toss (cabers are represented by hollow cardboard tubes). Ribbons are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. All others get participant ribbons. The field is usually crowded; therefore, multiple events happen simultaneously throughout the day. We encourage all children attending the Festival to participate! Everyone who does is sure to have a great time!
