yeah - neither did i, until this year.... and apparently this was their 30th Annual.... :/
i went in hopes of finding HAGGIS, b/c that is what the website had promised... unfortunately there was no haggis to be found. they did have bangers (a type of sausage) at nearly every food vendor there. i've had bangers - i do not like bangers - i wanted to try some damn haggis. the website LIED to me :(
however, while looking around the surprisingly small festival, i did come across some interesting things:
and no, i did not buy any food there. b/c like i said, the food there was mostly composed of bangers... or food that had nothing to do with Scottish heritage (shave ice, kalua pork sandwiches, etc.).
i have to say, you'd think after 30 years of doing this festival it would have been better.... there were only a handful of vendors, a few "heritage" tents, and music. there were no program pamphlets to be found anywhere, so we didn't know what "events" would start when, and it doesn't say on the website either (don't even get me started about the website). while there were some amusing things, i finished this festival in about 30 minutes.....
unfortunately, i think this is the first and last time i'll be going to the festival... unless it gets better - which i kind of doubt. its a bummer really :(
