The Scottish Festival
We went to the Scottish Festival in Farmington yesterday. This is a annual event for the last 6 years, Bonnie and I started going when it was at McAllister College in St Paul. They have moved it to the fair grounds in Farmington. I love the Scottish Bands and the KILTS. What is it about KILTS. They are pretty hot.
At the festival we have been volunteering for three years making balloon animals in the family tent. We make many different items, but mostly swords and hats. Some of the kids must have had 15 swords or more. They are soft compared to the wood swords they sell at the festival. We always have lots of fun and eat lots of food. David went for the first time this year, and he tried Scotch Eggs, Haggis, and Suet. They were OK, I did like the Scotch Eggs. My favorite food is the crapes and I am going to get a crape maker for myself soon.
Here are some photos and the slide show on the side will be the Scottish Festival.
