    Sad, that Bernice hasn't attended the Minnesota Scottish Fair or the predecessor Macalester Scottish Country Fair since it was FREE – at least 25 years ago. She's missing a great event that offers so much more than it did way back then. Where else can you see hundreds of men in kilts ~ and that doesn't include the pipers, dancers & athletes.
