The Scottish American Society of the Treasure Valley is back with its annual Celtic Festival and Highland Games. You’ll find pro athletes competing in traditional events (toss that hammer!), stages of Scottish and Irish dancing, blasting bagpipes — and lots of food: bangers and mash, haggis, meat pies and more. The headlining musical act this year is The Young Dubliners, who will crank the party volume to 11. And, yes, there will be a beer tent. Among the selections: Local flavors from Crescent Brewery of Nampa, including a Scottish dark ale and bitter.
