Tartans, and bagpipes

Rainy Tartan Day Parade, originally uploaded by dustin____.

Guess where I'll be tomorrow.

Yes, you guessed it, the Tartan Day Parade.

To quote Roja Heydarpour at the NY Times from last year's parade:

"Several thousand pipers and drummers in kilts will march up Avenue of the
Americas tomorrow for the ninth annual Tartan Day Parade. A celebration of
Scottish culture, the parade is the culmination of Tartan Week in New York."

The Skinny
Where: 6th Avenue, b/n 45th St. & 58th St.
When: 2:00
Who: Cool people.
Why: Because there are going to be men in skirts, oh, and BAGPIPES!!
