Grandfather Mountain Highland Games 2019
Before we headed to the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games we stopped by Elk River Falls.
The First Day, I was able to get there later during the day for the Scottish Concert.
On the walkway to where they host the highland games, on the ground they had all of the Scottish Clan emblems.
This group of photos shows the Blacksmithing & Armor, 18th Century Scottish Fashion, Scottish Apparel, and of course TARTAN.
I'm part of Clan Campbell on my Mom's side. The crest is a boars head and the saying is "Never Forget". Right beside the Campbell tent, was the Gordons. The creator of Winnie The Pooh was a Gordon. I also found a few other clan tents. Outlander Fans will appreciate the Clan Mackenzie and Clan Fraser. They also had the Highland Games going on as well as the Scottish Dancers. This was extremely cultural enriching.
This trip was very inspiring and I've definitely got some ideas coming for future costumes/cosplay.
