So you used to watch The Simpsons, and after seeing Groundskeeper Willie razz Principal Skinner’s effeminate ways, you fancy yourself an expert on Scottish culture—the plaid skirts, simmered animal entrails and unnatural affinity for sheep. Well, we don’t want to derail your astute ethnography, but there’s more. At ScotsFest at the OC Fairgrounds, you can witness athletic events such as the Caber Toss, in which burly competitors attempt to flip a telephone-pole-sized log end for end. Also not to be missed are the bands piping the stirring, patriotic song “Scotland the Brave.” Just try to suppress the goose bumps.
