We used to live across the street from a man that attended those events and wore a kilt. They had great stories to tell. I think my husband would rather be kilt dead than wear one. Hehe.

Looks like lots of fun! I had a kilt when I was a kid. It was red plaid.

What a cool day that must have been. If a guy wears a kilt, he must be the kind to like his picture taken. :-) He's got to be fun!

Wish we had something like that, around these parts. :-)

Deb, great post! How fun was that! Loved the guy with the goatee and combat boots. Wish I could have been there with ya! I have some Scott heritage somewhere and would like to find it. Guess I'll have to go to the library and do some digging.

I had a good friend who would dress in his kilt, didn't see him in the photos, but he's in the Dallas area.
That kilt for sale is the same plaid that I wore in parochial school when we had uniforms of plaid skirts and white blouses, that takes me waaaay back!

At least it wasn't raining THAT day!

Nothing gets me more excited than a man in a plaid skirt.
