There was also live music and dancing, lots of food and Celtic art on display for everyone to enjoy.

The 42nd annual Savannah Scottish Games kicked off at Bethesda Academy on Saturday.

About 3, 000 attendees were able to step back in time to what it might have been like to watch the real Scottish games. Different clans represented during the games for hammer throws and the Caber toss, where the athlete tosses a block of wood shaped like a telephone pole.

The Savannah Scottish Games are the fourth oldest Scottish Games in the Southeastern United States. 

"It's wonderful, said Sharon Lee, who went to the event. "It's wonderful, we're older and don't have a lot of family left. And we've found out we have ancestors connected to so many of these different clans. And we're all cousins if you really think about it."

There was also live music and dancing, lots of food and Celtic art on display for everyone to enjoy.
