The Scotch Colony, New Brunswick, Canada, is located in the Atlantic Time Zone (Eastern Time Zone folks are an hour behind–that means if an event is listed at 11:00 AM Atlantic it is at 10:00 AM Eastern) So all you U.S. cousins: don’t be late 🙂
Because of the forecast for freezing rain, the Robbie Burns concert scheduled for Sun. afternoon, Jan. 26th in Kincardine is cancelled. We don’t want anyone to land in a ditch! Please pass the word to anyone who was planning to attend. Thanks! (From Darlene)

Yes, it was a rainy, cold day at the Gathering of the Scots this year. Many said it was weather just like in Scotland. Many thanks to all the organizers and volunteers as well as the attendees who came to the festival. One of the booths was our very own, shown here.
The Gathering of the Scots Festival will take place in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick on May 23-26, 2013. The big day is Saturday at Veteran’s Field on East Riverside Drive. Lots of bagpipes and kilts along with a full day of heavyweight games! Come early and stay for the day. Try some homemade haggis on a delicious bun with strawberry shortcake for dessert.
One of the highlights of the day is the Scottish Clan March led by the bagpiper. It is heartwarming to see as young and old come together onto the field, followed by the young rugby players from local schools. Be sure to bring your camera.
