The first-ever Scots & Brats is taking place this Saturday from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Vance Park. Admission into the event is free.
Scots & Brats, short for bratwursts, is a fall festival that showcases the Scottish and German heritage in the Upstate of South Carolina. The event will feature German beer and food, Border Collie herding dogs, and Highland Games demonstrations.
“Scots & Brats is an opportunity for PC and the City of Clinton to work together to plan an exciting event that brings PC students and everyone in the Clinton community together,” said Daniel Adams, PC’s Director of Student Involvement.
Kids will love getting their faces painted, petting animals in a petting zoo, and watching Bavarian dancers and Border Collies. And there’s much more, says Adele Alducin, Main Street manager with the City of Clinton.
“I am so very excited to have Highland Game demos and, of course, the end of the night concert with Brynmor. They are a Celtic Rock band from NC that will certainly be a crowd pleaser,” Alducin said. “Last but not least the food will be extraordinary. Who can resist brats and beer?”
PC and the City of Clinton joined efforts to make the event happen.
Events begin in Vance Park at 3:00 in the afternoon and last until 7:30. Brynmor, a Celtic rock band, takes the stage in the park at 7:30 and will play until 9:00. A free trolley service will be available for PC students from Bailey Stadium, Fraternity Court and Springs Student Center between 3 and 9 p.m.
Green Health System and Laurens County Memorial Hospital are sponsoring the event.
