Tartan Day in San Diego - Saturday April 3rd - Balboa Park

Tartan Day is celebrated by the Scots in San Diego on the first Saturday in April. I happened to be wandering around the park today and thought I would stop in, especially since my wife Heather is partly of Scottish heritage.

They had some music going on the little stage by the International Houses. I arrived pretty much at the end of the celebration, but did get to hear a bit of music.

The closing ceremony consisted of the Black Watch taking down the colors. Here they are lined up and ready to go.

I felt bad that Heather wasn't with me to see this, so I found a little surprise for her, a bear with her clan tartan. Here he is sitting under the official Friendship Tree that is just outside of the International Houses complex in Balboa Park.
