Participants in the Seaside Games travel from all the western states to take part and our honored Clan Grant Society of North America will be flooding us with members from all across the nation and Canada. There could be a new native Scots thrown into the mix as well!

Saturday brings the gala Opening Ceremonies and Grand Parade at noon for all to see. A true color spectacle! Four stages of wonderful music will be playing continuously throughout the weekend featuring Seven Nations, Sligo Rags, Cockswain, Paul and Brian of Highland Way, and Nerea, the Fiddler, while nearby the Highland Heavies, the braw Scottish athletes, will amaze you. The herding dogs demos will amuse and thrill you and the dancers of all ages will enthrall you! The St. Andrews Society of Los Angeles Harp Glen is an awesome stop and the World War II military encampment will teach you a thing or three about our tremendous history.
