BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

In a holiday weekend full of events, The Highland Games of Louisiana took place at LSU's Rural Life Museum.

The Highland Games was started in 1999 in Jackson, Louisiana. After 9 years in the hills of the Felicianas, the games were in hiatus, but are back this year in Baton Rouge. The public was able to sling a weight, catch a bagpipe concert and watch a Border Collie herd sheep.

"We can accept people who'd just like to come out and try it," said Joe Campbell, Chief of Highland Games of Louisiana.

The Highland Games will continue once more Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Rural Life Museum on Essen Lane.

It is regular museum admission to enter. The games are sponsored by the St. Andrew Society of Baton Rouge and Caledonian Society of Baton Rouge.
