Where’s yer kilt? Everyone’s Scottish during Tartan Week!

Are you a fan of Irn-Bru, neeps and tatties and wee drams of whisky? Did all that sound like a load of gibberish? Nae bother. Regardless, dust off those kilts and sporrans, Tartan Week is coming our way. Sadly, Scotland Week doesn’t seem to be making too many appearances in the nation’s captial this year, but good old Alexandria will be getting in the spirit this Saturday.

On April 3 from noon to 6 p.m., a National Tartan Day Celebration takes over Market Square (at 301 King Street). Think piping, drumming, kilts, shopping and live music by The Devil’s Tailors. I, for one, cannae think of a better (free!) way to spend a sun-kissed Saturday.
