Walking to the Glenwood Community Centre, I could hear the bagpipes already. From two blocks away. The Scottish are loud and proud.
I went to Folklorama‘s United Kingdom pavilion last week, and I was curious to see how the Pavilion of Scotland would be different. More bagpipes? More meat? More plaid? Yes to all of the above.
