NH Scottish Highland Games – 2015

In our world of high-thrill amusement parks and adventure outdoor entertainment, it is nice to see the simple things in life still appreciated. I like a roller coaster as well as the next person, but there is something about our annual  Highland Games that makes the three day event special. The air carries the delicious scent of BBQ, and the vendors offer some of the most unique creations around. I will never develop a taste for Haggis, but the fish-n-chips rocks! After a few bites of  a mega-size cookie, I was ready for the games!  This year, NH had the pleasure of welcoming Hapfor Bjornsson, aka The Mountain, from Game of Thrones. He can be seen below carrying 500 lbs of stone a record 149 feet. With his closet competitor carrying the stones only 40+ feet, he made the weight seem like a a bag of groceries.  Truly impressive!
