Clover South Carolina Scots-Irish Festival

Clover will celebrate its Scots-Irish heritage this weekend with the music of pipe bands, the pageantry of Highland dancing and the fun of border collie demos and Scottish heavy athletics.

The annual Feis Chlobhair -- a Scottish games and Scots-Irish festival sponsored by the town of Clover and the Greater Clover Chamber of Commerce -- will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Clover Memorial Stadium.

The event is in its 15th year, said organizer Carla Pendleton, who said the event began because most of the people who settled in the Clover area in the 1700s were Scots-Irish.
