Wooden pole throw, stone throw and bagpipe music. That and much more is what you can expect at this weekend's 19th annual Scottish Games & Gathering at the Kern County Fairgrounds.

Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox," this year's game marshal David Stroud talked about the games happening Saturday and what makes them unique.

"We have a reputation of being the friendly games," Stroud said. "It's a family event."

Giving a preview of the kind of music you can expect to hear was Linda Snoody, 16, who has played the bagpipes for three years.

She played "Scotland the Brave" -- an unofficial national anthem of Scotland.

Stefani Dias, Californian assistant lifestyles editor, also reminded people to check out the Mac & Cheese guide in Sunday's paper. It has all the information you need to guide you through the April 12 Maccaroni and Cheese Festival at Cal State Bakersfield.
