With the majestic Queen Mary ocean liner docked in the harbor, bagpipe players from throughout California are in Long Beach this weekend for the 20th annual "ScotsFest."

This year's festivities began Saturday and conclude today. They honored Riverside police officer Michael Crain and San Bernadino sheriff's detective Jeremiah MacKay, killed during the search for fugitive former cop Christopher Dorner. MacKay was a bagpipe player.

ScotFest 2013 includes traditional Scottish activities from Highland dancing and games like the caber toss, to a grand parade with representatives from authentic clans, and even whiskey tasting.
