Then...there is the music! It's all about the bagpipe! This is thee highlight for me. I love, love the bagpipe! The singers join in on a folk song ... singing of their homeland with so much vigor that you can't help but grin. Next, they strike up a sad-sounding ballad, almost haunting in a way.
And of course, one can't attend a Scottish Highlander Fest without seeing a'plenty of laddies in their kilts;) The wearing of the kilt ... well, you've heard all the talk;) The practice dates back to the 1600s & is still alive & well today (at the Highlander Fest, anyway)!
All in all, another fun year at Apple Works...learning new things, making memories, & enjoying each other. We head home with some apple butter & a couple bags of apples, usually breaking into the bag before we even leave the lot.
