I Can Has...Haggis? Scottish Festival - Part I

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to summer Scottish Highland Games.
This year it was all about the signage!

Good food....?

From the normal fair fare, to the kitchy.

Lots of sharp and pointy things. You just have to be old enough to fondle them...

This one was new to me. :-)

And here's my favorite festival group. One of the reasons I look forward to going every year.

Best T-shirt seen at festival.

Came here via David
The Wicked Tinkers are my all time favorite.
And that was a Canned Haggis stand, wasn't it? We have them at our festival, as well. Gruesome stuff, though the canned drambuie cake tisn't bad...

I read all your Scottish festival posts and enjoyed them very much! It's so enjoyable to immerse ones self in culural celebrations ad to have fun!

I recently went to a Renaissance Fair here in NY, and enjoyed the fantasy of it all
