GREAT FALLS -

Clans from around Montana gathered in Great Falls for the second annual Kilt O' The Falls Celtic Festival.

The day featured nine athletic events with highland games including the stone put, Scottish hammer throw and the sheaf toss.

Proceeds benefit the Great Falls Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorders Clinic, which provides free speech and language assistance to area youth.

The festival also included a parade featuring all seven attending clans, metal demonstrations and live music.

Event organizers say the while the event benefits a great cause, the day is also about enjoying Scottish and Irish cultures in Montana.

"What started out as basically just a random thought, turned is turning into something really wonderful for Great Falls and it kind of makes me a proud papa to be part of the origination of that," said Organizer Tim Stoddard.

The Kilt O' the Falls hosts several other events and fundraisers that help offset costs for the festival.
