The Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival and Games is a dog-friendly event. All dogs on a short fixed-length leash are welcome. We really "go to the dogs" on Sunday. The dog parade is all about the dogs and owners showing off and having fun, and is one of our most popular events. We will line ‘em up and parade around the Main Field for everyone to see. Entry fee is only $5.00 and all proceeds will go to one of our local non-profit animal rescue groups, Almost Home Animal Rescue from Maryville, TN. Please make sure you visit their tent while at the games!
THE PARADE: Any dog on a short leash may participate. All will parade in front of the grandstands while the P.A. Announcer makes a valiant attempt to identify the various breeds.
THE TALENT "COMPETITION": If there is time, a few dogs may be asked to show off their favorite trick. Pretty much anything goes at this point!
