Kilt-sporting men may vie for a "wee special reward" on Saturday if they choose to have that bendable area just north of their shins judged in a Bonny Knees contest at the Prosser Scottish Fest & Highland Games.
A blindfolded panel of women will look for excellent bone structure, strength of calf and skin texture as spectators cheer on their champions. The Bonniest Knees recipient wins.
This celebration of all things Celtic features an anvil launch; music; pipe bands; clan tents; Highland dancers; a firefighter challenge; traditional and modern crafts, including the Desert Fiber Arts Guild spinning and weaving; highland heavy athletics; MacPherson's Farm with Highland cattle and woolly sheep, Highland Market and food vendors, with everything from jewelry and delicate crystal to music CDs and DVDs, clan badges and heavy armament; children's activities and Scottish vendors; and Flying Anvil Pub for adult beverages.
Visitors can trace their Scottish roots or delve into the history of Scotland by talking with Irish and Scottish clan and society members throughout the day, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Port of Benton Wine and Food Park in Prosser.
A Parade of Tartans will occur during the 12:30 p.m. welcoming ceremonies.
General admission is $8 and $5 for ages 5-12 years and 65 and older. Children 4 years and younger are free.
