SARASOTA, Fla. - The ABC 7 Event of the Week is the Sarasota Highland Games and Celtic Festival at the Sarasota Fairgrounds this weekend.

The festivities open Friday night at 6 pm with a Celtic Concert. And the fun continues Saturday with a bag pipe competition starting at 9 am.

There'll be live bands, Celtic food and beer, and demonstrations of strength and agility as world class athletes compete in the Highland Games. Scottish dancing, gifts, and clothing will all be on display. And don't forget, Highland dogs, known to be an exceptionally intelligent breed, will be showing off their skills.
