St Louis Scottish Games and Cultural Festival

Mike Macauley and Bob Macauley, commissioners of Clan MacAulay for Northern Missouri and Southern Missouri, recently collaborated to insure that for the first time Clan MacAulay would be represented in the clan exhibition area of the St. Louis Scottish Games and Cultural Festival.

The festival began Friday night, September 26 with a torchlight ceremony at dusk.  Numerous clans were in attendance. 

 

The festival continued Saturday, September 27 with a full slate of competitive Scottish Games along with music, dancing, sheep herding demonstrations, pipe and drum competitions, lots of food, drink and vendor booths offering many Scottish heritage items for sale.  Weather for the day was spectacular with clear skies and temperatures in the 80°Fs.

Mike and Bob manned a Clan MacAulay booth handing out Clan MacAulay information.  The booth was sparse owing to the fact that this was the first time Clan MacAulay was present at the St Louis games.

Next year promises to be bigger and better!
