(CBS) — It’s a taste of Scotland in suburban Chicago, reports WBBM’s Regine Schlesinger as the 28th Annual Scottish Festival and Highland Games get underway this month.
Gus Noble, president of the Chicago Scots, says it’s like taking a trip to Scotland without the airfare.
“You’ll notice the sound of bagpipes as soon as you walk in. Lots of people dressed in kilts and tartan. And then as you progress through the festival, you’ll see the icons of Scottish culture.”
Traditional Scottish cuisine including haggis, Highland dancing and Scottish sports contests.
