Plaid to the Bone

I'm still not quite sure how it happened, but I ended up at the Scottish Festival at the O.C. Fairgrounds with Andrew on Saturday. And I'm still not sure if it was one of the coolest or nerdiest events I've ever been to. (I'm thinking it's both.) Anyway, it was TONS of fun! Here are just a few things you can do at the Scottish Festival:

See the band "Bad Haggis" in concert. They are awesome! Seriously!

Listen to beautiful harps.

Cringe at distasteful T-shirts.

Buy a sword.

Shoot arrows. (This was really fun!)

We were pretty good, if I do say so =)

Watch the caber toss...don't mess with these guys!

Get a picture with this guy...I have never seen so much plaid and so many kilts in MY ENTIRE LIFE! And I must say...kilts are HOT! Seriously, these guys really knew how to rock a kilt.

Watch a sheep herding demonstration (very entertaining).

Buy a kilt, obviously.

Listen to a cool drumline.
The Scottish Festival was great. I really wished that I played bagpipes or had a cool kilt or could do Scottish dancing or play the fiddle. Scots are awesome! I'll definitely be back here in 2009.
