BUFFALO NIAGARA SCOTTISH FESTIVAL at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village in Amherst, NY

Pam asked me if I was interested in volunteering at the festival, and I agreed to.  We signed up and went early this morning.  We were given free T-shirts.   We were put together at the rear entrance to do admissions
It was a busy morning!  We were provided with cold water every now and then.  We were blessed with a pretty strong breeze most of the morning.  
and every now and then we were entertained by various characters.  This one was particularly interesting. 

We finished up and were relieved at about one p.m.  We walked up to the main building (which is air conditioned) and used the ladies room and purchased a snack and sat and listened to the music for a short while.

We finally braved the ninety degree weather and went back out.  We watched the 96th Highlanders Pipes and Drums perform and then march away from the pavilion.  

Then we were lucky enough to get seats in the shade so we sat and watched a group of girls from Hamilton, Ontario do some Scottish dances.

 Unfortunately, the power went out about halfway into their half hour.

We checked out a few of the vendors and watched one of the games.
and then we went inside several of the buildings.  

This is the Hoover House.
I had hoped to see all of the buildings but it was ninety degrees and very humid so we left around three p.m.  We stopped at Johnsons for an ice cream cone on the way home.
