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

And what's a Scottish Festival without bagpipes? LOTS of them?!?

Actually, the "massing of the pipes" is one of my favorite features. There's nothing quite like a field full of over two dozen pipe bands playing and marching towards you...

"Scotland the Brave"

Here is the youngest drum major I've ever seen. I think he was 11.

...and speaking of *drums* (aren't pipe band drum lines the best?)

We watched a drum circle practice for a bit - especially enjoying those drum-sticks-with-fluffy-marshmallows on the ends...

Ah-hah! I've often wondered about the technical term for those drumsticks. Thankyou!
