Men in kilts
You may wonder what men in kilts have to do with the South. Many Scots and Irish folks settled in the Carolinas in the mid 1700-1800's. The Carolina mountains were very similar to their beloved highlands of home. Throughout the South you can find countless Celtic festivals and Highland games. If you've never been to one of these events, you'll be amazed at the wonderful Scotch eggs, shepards pies, tartans, family heraldry, music, dance - and endlessly friendly people.
