Get Your Kilt On at the Queen Mary Scots Festival

Saturday, February 13, 2016 | 2:02 am

Embrace your inner Scotsman and join Off Kilter Kilts at the Queen Mary Scots Festival featuring the Highland Games. Off Kilter Kilts will offer a wide selection of kilts and accessories to get you in the Scottish Spirit.

Professional and amateur competitions will be held in everything from drumming to highland athletics. Highland Athletics are traditional Scottish tests of strength and technique featuring sports like Hammer Throw, Caber Toss or even Darts, and predate the modern Olympics. Time to show your strength! On top of the games, the event will also be host to a traditional Burn’s supper, whisky and craft beer tastings, the Rock Yer Kilt after party with authentic Gaelic folk music, and much much more! www.offkilterkilts.com

The Queen Mary was in fact constructed in Clydebank in Scotland in 1936, and it is in memory of this that the Highland Games take place on the boat every year. Off Kilter Kilts will bring along some great looking kilts for you to buy to become a part of the Scottish experience.

The Queen Mary Scots Festival takes place on February 13-14 and tickets cost $22 for adults and $13 for children, with a $3 discount for advance bookings online. Certain events cost extra – see www.queenmary.com for more information
