Tulsans Take In Scotfest

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Green Country celebrates Scottish heritage with Scotfest featuring music, food, and some serious competition.

The Highland Games Lightweight Championship welcomes 120 men and women to compete for a chance at the world championship.

One of the events is the Sheaf toss where competitors use pitchforks to toss a 16-pound burlap sack up and over a wire.

Michael Dickens is a five-time world champion and explains how it's different from Scotland's national sport: golf.

"We definitely feed off the crowd energy and screaming.  You know the other crazy Scottish sport they like people to be quiet.  But we like people to make a lot of noise." Dickens said. 

Scotfest continues Saturday night at Riverwest park and runs through 6pm Sunday.
