Come to Idlewild & SoakZone in Ligonier Township on Saturday, Sept. 24, and enjoy a day long celebration of Celtic culture focused on the musical and athletic traditions of Scotland.

This annual gathering of the Clans will provide the opportunity for attendees to experience such Scottish traditions as competition piping, harping, fiddling and drumming; tossing the caber, putting the stone, the Scottish hammer throw, storytelling, a living history demonstration of the Scottish military, Scottish breed dog exhibits, and the timeless tradition of Gaelic Mod that is a competition involving Scottish Gaelic prose, poetry, and song.

An “Old Tyme Scottish Service” that blends elements of services from the 1600’s and today in an engaging and spiritually enriching experience will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25, in Covenant Presbyterian Church, North Market Street, Ligonier. The service celebrates roots, heritage, essentials and changes in both church and culture.

In the spirit of the day and keeping with tradition, it is requested that males sit on the left side of the center aisle, females on the right side. Another tradition that will be observed is the locking of the doors.
