The men might be wearing skirts, but they've got some incredible dogs!

At the 36th Charleston Scottish Games and Highland Gathering on Saturday, kilted men will compete in amateur weight lifts, Border collie demonstrations and more to celebrate their Scottish heritage. Events kick off at 8:30 a.m. with more than 20 bagpipe bands, Scottish and Celtic musicians and dancers performing until 4:30 p.m. at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant. Gate admission is $15; $5 for children 6-12. Parking is $5 per car (includes program). This year’s event also will recognize the nine Charleston firefighters who died in June. In addition, the Scottish Society of Charleston will make a $1,000 donation for help purchase a thermal imaging camera that deceased firemen Brandon Thompson and Michael French were raising money to purchase. For more information, call (843) 552-2563.
