The United Scottish Clans of Oklahoma got together Saturday for the Iron Thistle Scottish Heritage Festival in Yukon.

Held every spring, the Iron Thistle Scottish Heritage Festival is a family-oriented event that celebrates Scottish tradition with bagpipe music, dancers, food and displays of skill that range from fencing to the caber toss, in which participants hurl a large piece of wood as far as possible.
