Maybe just some more hay on the ground to sop up the mud during the rain, but great experience otherwise.

What You'll Get

Bagpipes achieve their full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today's Groupon: for $13, you get one weekend pass to Meadow Highland Games & Celtic Festival in Doswell (a $27 value).

The 17th annual Meadow Highland Games & Celtic Festival celebrates kilt-country traditions with a weekend packed with live music, authentic cuisine, a Celtic market, and sundry athletic competitions. Headlining musical acts feature bands such as Albannach and Barleyjuice, who get tartans twirling with native jigs and ancient war songs. A series of heavy athletic feats display equal parts brawn and will with a bevy of weight-throwing contests, including the caber toss, in which participants flip tree branches that measure 21 feet long and can weigh 150 pounds. Festival-goers may also witness harp, fiddle, and dance competitions, and the market offers a trove of Celtic arts, crafts, and traditional togas.

About Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival

The Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival gives visitors a chance to get an up-close view of more than 20 hot-air balloon teams from across the country, and then observe them in their natural habitat: the sky. The weekend-long festival is held on the grassy expanse of Meadow Event Park. The main attractions are the morning and early-evening flights, when all 20 colorful vessels take to the air at once and gracefully interrupt the annual paper-plane migration.

On Saturday, a sweeping balloon-glow display will light up the night sky. Meanwhile, off-site rides instill wonder with dawn or near-dusk flights in one of the balloons—and include transportation back to the grounds in the chase car. And yet balloons aren't the festival's only draw: regional crafts vendors display their hand-made apparel and arts, while craft beer and wine tastings pair with food from local restaurants. Throughout each day, live bands play classic rock and new wave, old-school jazz and R&B, and folk-infused country.
