I hope some of y'all Twin Citians made it to the Scottish Ramble. Maybe you were there Saturday?
Sunday was the day our family took it all in. Without a single drop of Scottish blood between us, I marvel at how enamored we are with this festival!
Here are the highlights:
The Thistledown Dancers performing in the cortile of the Landmark Center
The Highland Dancers - sorry I did not get a photo, but I borrowed this one -
My new favorite local musician Ross Sutter singing songs from his Songs for Children CD
Sunshine narrating the story of Wee Gillis to the master storyteller Sir Gustav Doc'tain
Dino acting in Sir Gustav Doc'tain's storytelling session
The Macalester College Pipe Band
My favorite shortbread of all time and a local company - Bramblewood Cottage. I love the orange chocolate chip and the lavender-ginger versions. We will be serving these for our next teatime!
Other Scottish fare we enjoyed were the Scotch Eggs, Haggis with Tatties & Neeps, Babies' Head and Cheese & Onion Pie.
If you feel you missed out take note of the date of the Minnesota Scottish Fair and Highland Games Saturday May 9th.
