Cultural Display

I always love seeing the kilts and seeing the family names that are associated with that particular pattern.  I also had an enlightening conversation with a volunteer about the display of Chief Peguis signing the treaty with Lord Selkirk which happened 200 years ago.



I didn’t have room for a meal (re: Brazilian protein-filled platter beforehand), but this pavilion has all sorts of delicacies including their often-sold-out haggis.  That is, if you have the guts to try it. 😉  If you want something a little less intimidating, try the Scotch Egg or a classic Scottish shepherd’s pie.  There is also a lovely trifle for dessert and shortbread cookies for a snack!  Top it off with some whiskey!

The main stage is used the entire time for entertainment, including between shows.  This pavilion is non-stop for its performances!  I enjoyed the group of four doing their vocals, with the full band backup.  We got to see a variety of entertainers from the wee kids to the adults.  One of my favourite numbers is always the medley of bagpipes.  This is like attending a Scottish rock concert!


Above and Beyond

At 1:00pm on the Saturday, they include the classic Heavy Games competition and beer gardens to enjoy while you watch the festivities!

Thank you again to the Pavilion of Scotland for having us!
