The second annual Grapevine Lake Celtic Festival and Highland Games were held at Meadowmere Park on April 9. This event not only celebrated Celtic heritage, but featured traditional music, dance, food, and, of course, Highland Games.

The Games consist of traditional Celtic feats-of-strength competitions such as Braemar Stone, Hammer Toss, and Caber [log] Toss. Altogether, there were 14 athlete classes, each competing in 9 different events.
