Rocks are being hurled and kilts are being sported in the East Bay this weekend for an annual celebration that celebrates Scottish ancestry.
For the 151st time, people from across the Bay Area flocked to the Alameda County Fairgrounds Saturday in Pleasanton for the Scottish Highland Gathering and Games to commemorate Scotland's culture, history and tradition.
Scottish bagpipes will blare until Sunday evening as attendees participate in a wide range of events including archery, rugby and whisky tasting, according to the event's website.
The assortment of activities is a welcome attraction for longtime attendees Keith and Holly Gordon.
"It's a place where we can come out and celebrate our Scottish heritage and meet with others who are just as proud," Holly Gordon said.
The Scottish Highland Gathering and Games will continue through Sunday, according to the event website.
