GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - The third annual Grand Valley Highland Games took place this weekend and provided a space for the public to learn about the Celtic culture through music, artistry, workmanship, food and much more.

The Highland Games celebrate rich Celtic culture by preserving history by teaching the future, and allowing individuals to connect with their roots like Sharon Taylor from Scotland.

Taylor stated that she brought the games to the valley to feel closer to home.

“A lot of Americans here have Scottish and Irish heritage or British heritage, and they all want to be connected to their roots, and by doing something like this, it helps them be involved and be a little more in touch and learn about the history, the traditions, and the heritage.”
