Scottish Festival returns to Dundee

    DUNDEE—The second Dundee Scottish Festival of the Finger Lakes in Dundee is right around the corner. On Saturday, Sept. 10, the village will be the site of everything Scottish. The event celebrates the origin of the name Dundee.
    Activities will begin at 7 a.m. with breakfast at the Dundee Presbyterian Church. This will be followed by the ancient ceremony of Kirkin of the Tartans, also at the church. Kirkin dates back to the days when wearing kilts in Scotland was prohibited.
    Most events will be at Black Rock Speedway at the south side of the village. Like the Pied Piper, a parade at 10 a.m. from Dundee Central School to the Route 14A race track will draw people to the day-long event. Music, Highland games, crafts, food and activities for children will fill the festival area. Featured this year are The MacLeod Fiddlers, Penny Whiskey, Scottish Highland Equestrian Drill Team and Highland Dancers from Pennsylvania.
    Crafts, games, Scottish and American food and activities for children will all fill the hours until the festival ends at 7 p.m.
    One event will follow the festival by two weeks. North Sea Gas from Scotland was one of the most popular groups that performed at last year’s event. They will present a concert at Dundee Central School Friday, Sept. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
    Admission to the festival is $10 for people ages 18 to 80. Other ages are free.
