The four-day Festival attracts clans, cultural groups, dancers and performers from around the world. Entertainment includes a street parade, kirking of the tartan, massed pipe bands, yard dog trials, children’s entertainment, a fun run, dancing, flag raising ceremonies, poet breakfasts, market stalls and Celtic foods.
