NEWBURGH, Ind. – (WEHT) The second-annual Highland Games returned to Newburgh on Saturday, bringing athletes to compete in traditional Scottish games.

Along with the competition, the event featured food trucks, a beer garden, and fun for all ages. One of the crowd favorites was the caper toss, featuring the throwing of a massive caper.

“Whether it be part of their heritage or just a fun thing for the tristate, a new cultural thing that we’re trying to bring and make big. We’re very happy with the turnout, it’s been an awesome event,” said Chairman Joshua Deyoung.

The Highland Games are expected to return to the tristate next year.
