At the Payson Scottish Festival

What a great day yesterday!
DH and I manned the MacRae booth/tent yesterday and it was a really nice day in Payson, Utah! They put on the "biggest free Scottish Festival in the US" or so they say. www.paysonscottishfestival.org
We joined other clans and vendors for a day long celebration of our Scottish heritage.
I took a break from the tent and took some pictures around the festival and met this Darling Scottish Deer hound...a rather rare breed in the Tribe of Mar tent and had a nice visit. His name is D'Artagnin (spelled wrong I know but I will correct later) and is about a year and a half old. He is from the west coast of the US and was a sweet guy and a bit shy. I know some people who would love to have a deer hound around to get rid of pesky deer who eat all their plants LOL
I think he might be a bit taken back at the size of the deer here in Utah as I understand they are much smaller in Scotland.
Here's DH and I ready to bring in our clan banner during the opening ceremony. We are wearing our new clan t-shirts and DH is wearing my newest ebay buy of ball caps.
I enjoy the sports at the festival but because our tent was far away from the field I only got to get a few glimpes of the action. Took a pic of one of the Sheaf Toss contestants as he begins his throw...he made it by the way!

We met lots of really nice people and added some names to our growing list of MacRae family members in Utah!

The Payson Scottish Festival was a lot of fun! It's a great atmosphere and a fun park to have it at. You should include a link to the festival's website (www.PaysonScottishFestival.org) so that more people can find out about it.
