ESTES PARK, Colorado, (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
For more than three decades, Estes Park has been the backdrop for one of the largest gatherings for people of Scottish heritage to celebrate their culture, cuisine, music, dance, and each other. Each year, Estes Park is filled with the sounds of bagpipes, Scottish brogues, and Scottish music for this three day escape to the Scottish Highlands. Travelers heading to Estes Park, just north of Boulder, are booking Estes Park vacation rentals through ColoradoVacationRentals.com.
Held annually the weekend after Labor Day, Estes Parks Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival traditionally hosts bands from Great Britain, Scotland, Canada and the United States. The festival has a long list of clans that come every year to represent their family histories.
Dogs of the British Isles will offer festival goers an opportunity to learn more about the various breeds, their unique traits and unbelievable abilities. Breed specific rescue groups have been invited to participate in the festival in the hopes of educating festival attendees about
each breed, and hopefully finding every dog a loving home.
One of the festivals highlights is an hour-long parade on Elkhorn Avenue, Estes Parks main street. Bagpipes, drummers, dancers, clans in tartan, Dogs of the British Isles, brass military bands and precision drill teams offer a preview of what can be expected on the festival field. The magnificent Rocky Mountain vista allows visitors to enjoy their visit from the festival and their Estes Park accommodations.
Now in its 35th year, the festival offers classic pipe music, Highland and Irish dance, International Scottish Athletic championships, jousters, Scotch tastings, food vendors, history seminars, exhibitions, and much more.
Known for its small town hospitality, Estes Park is a favorite vacation destination for folks heading to the Scottish festival. Many visitors prefer to book a private vacation rental home or cabin in Estes Park and bypass the limited options that hotel rooms offer.
Vacation rental properties in Estes Park offer home-away-from-home comforts like a full kitchen, laundry room, and plenty of privacy.
