    My daughter, my grandson and I had a wonderful time.
    Kilts and plaids, pipes and drums and dancing girls!
    What's not to love? :)

    Thanks Victor.

      The event is rain or shine, from what I've read on the internet. Here's the twitter site, by the way ... No mention of cancellation.­

      A few minutes ago, I found their kijiji ad at http://ottawa.kijiji....­ - It indicates that the show "goes no matter the weather".

    Make sure you and your camera are prepared for rain - it looks like it's going to rain all morning/afternoon :)

    Hi everyone ... I've updated the meetup rendez-vous particulars. Sunday's Tartan Day celebrations on Parliament Hill begin at 12:00 noon, but to give members a chance to meet in advance, I suggest meeting at 11:30 a.m. at the Bridgehead Coffeehouse, 96 Sparks Street (corner of Sparks and Metcalfe). I won't be able to attend as I'm double-booked, but it should be easy to locate fellow camera-carrying members. If anyone would like to officially event-host in my place, please let me know a.s.a.p. and I can add you. Thanks. - Victor

    I'm not sure yet whether I'll be able to attend, but thought I'd post this anyway as it may be of interest to other members of our group.
