The Houston Highland Games Association (HHGA) is pleased to announce that it will be partnering with Texas TicKids again to provide 2015 Houston Celtic Festival and Highland Games tickets to clients of local non-profits. The Festival will be held April 25 & 26 at the Houston Farm & Ranch Club on Highway 6 near I-10 in Houston TX.

Texas TicKids is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that accepts unused concert, sporting event and other activity tickets and makes them available to their vetted list of non-profits providing services to children. Last year HHGA made 350 tickets available through the generosity of sponsors of the Festival’s children’s area.

The children enjoyed putt putt golf, arts & crafts, storytelling and music. Each child received a Celtic Passport to get stamped at all the society and clan tents with a special treat at the end of their journey courtesy Walkers Shortbread. While the grownups are participating in the traditional Scottish athletic competitions, the children have their own wee competition with egg and spoon races, sack races, weight tosses and even their own scaled to size caber. Older children participated in Renaissance martial arts sword play under the guidance and instruction of the Association of Renaissance Martial Arts.

Sponsorship contributions to the Festival children’s area includes a contribution of Festival tickets to Texas TicKids. For details on the program and the opportunities available to participate contact Guinness Collins at vpwaysandmeans@HoustonHighlandGames.com .
