Texas Scottish Festival: Arlington, Texas

While possibly not technically Rennie, should be a great weekend with lots of men in kilts!

Also, the festival is hosting the International Highland Games Federation World Championship.

I've been to this event several times...if people are planning on going, I suggest you take lots of water. There is very little shade, but some very interesting shoppes and folks out there to meet. Generally the Scarby hard cores that attend this event go mundane simply cause it's too freakin hot for garb (ladies in particular). Have fun!

Info also posted in Celtic Corner:  http://www.renaissancefestival.com/forums/index.php?topic=740.0

Friday nights I don't generally wear my garb, as I go directly from work, but Saturday & Sunday I am usually in basic wench garb. 

Things to bring:
1. SUNBLOCK, because as has been mentioned, very little shade
2. comfortable shoes to walk in... most of the walking is on concrete or pavement, so be sure to have something your feet won't be screaming in.
3. Water... the website states NO ALCOHOL may be brought in, but as I recall, I've walked in before with a bottle of water, though I doubt they'd be happy if we were rolling in coolers full of water/soda/etc.

See everybody there in 9 or 10 days!

This is my favorite event of the year.  So much good music!  It *is* very, very hot -- temperature, I'm talking about the *temperature* here, although, yes, hot in other ways, too -- and totally worth it for anyone who can stand the heat.

The headliners this year are Seven Nations.  I have such an enormous crush on them, zomg.  Squee!!!

Also not to be missed: The Killdares, Clandestine, and -- I cannot possibly love him more -- Brian McNeill.
