2018 Rhode Island Scottish Festival
« on: June 16, 2018, 04:02:56 PM »
On Saturday, June 9th, Dottie and I spent our 45th wedding anniversary running the clan tent at the 20th annual Rhode Island Scottish Festival at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Richmond, RI.

It was a beautiful day not too hot and no humidity. I missed these games last year because of my grandson's graduation from high school so it was good to be back. They changed things up a bit this year because they moved the athletics to the parade grounds in the center of the clan village so we actually got to see some of the action.

There were only about 22 clans in attendance this year and half a dozen bands. We were fairly steady with visitors to the tent and everyone seemed to have a good time. I even got to meet one of our viking cousins, a Thomsen.
Next up for me is the Glasgow Lands Festival in North Hampton, MA at Look Park on Saturday July 21, 2018. If you're in the neighborhood stop in and say hello.

There are plenty more pics in the album here:
