Tartan Day 2015
Mungo and the Quimper Hitty human had a special outing to Centennial Square in Victoria last Saturday, where crowds of people gathered to celebrate Tartan Day !! Mungo was in his element!
The Grand Marshall of the Victoria Highland Games, was bemused by Mungo. He told us all about the upcoming Highland Games: click here to find out about the 2015 events. Mungo tells me he now wants a red serge jacket…with gold braid, and a fancy bonnet. I better get sewing…
The Victoria Weaver’s Guild had a table set up and experts available to help if you wanted to try weaving your own piece of tartan…Mungo thinks this would make a perfect Mungo-blanket…
This guy was one of three sportsmen who were keen to describe the Heavy Events, including putting the stone, weight for distance, weight for height, throwing the hammer, and the fabled caber toss.
Mungo was happy to meet a whole group of people who actually share his passion for the pipes. The Vancouver Island Caledonia Pipe Band was delighted to pose with him and commiserated about the difficulty in finding a place to practice. Click here for a link to their website.
Mungo becomes a little unfocused when he dreams about tartan!
Happy Tartan Day Today!
