Set in the shadows of the RMS Queen Mary, the 25th Annual Queen Mary’s Scots Festival drew visitor from all over the world from February 17 and 18, 2018. Many came to visit this grand liner only to be treated to good old fashion Scottish hospitality. One of the smaller events in southern California with only 20 clans in attendance, Scots Festival is a venue that should be visited at least once in a lifetime.
Some highlights of the festival…
- Approximately 7,000 visitors
- Twenty Clan booths.
- Two day regional Darts competition.
- Pipe Band competitions in eight categories.
- Traditional athletic competition.
- Over fifty vendors.
Clan Wallace Booth
The booth was located front and center on the first deck of the ship which provided easy access for visitors. Ten signed the registry with two visitors interested in becoming involved with the Clan Wallace Society.
Convened by Greg Wallace with help from Pat and Nikki Schuller (Phoenix, AZ) and Sarah and Peter (Los Angeles, CA). Thanks to all for their help.
