Don your kilts! Families and folks of all ages will gather at Livonia's Historic Greenmead Park for the 192nd annual Highland Games on Saturday, Aug. 6. The fun runs from 8:30 a.m. till 8:30 p.m., and the festivities include music, athletic competitions, Celtic crafts, merch and collectibles.
Just for little ones: The Wee Bairns Kids Area gives them an understanding of Scottish traditions through fun activities – including painting a shield for protection, tossing a wee caber and marching in the Wee Barons' Clan Parade. Best of all: Kids under 12 get in for free! Adult tickets are $15 at the door – but you can still get them in advance for $10. How?
