We’ve created a village for our wee visitors that is simply crammed full of excitement this year. After your child enters through the Loch Nessie Gate and receives his or her passport – for collecting stamps for prizes – the excitement begins.
Wee Scotland will be graced by the presence of a flock of Scottish Woods Faeries, who are flying in (no planes necessary) from all over the country. The bairns will be enchanted by the Faeries, who will host a Faerie Tea Party and will have special areas for reading fairy tales. Your child may want his picture made with one of our Faeries, assuming a camera can capture the image!
Our own Brave Scottish Princess, along with her Queen Mother and her little brothers, are going to be fending off suitors at the Princess’s Practice Archery Range, courtesy of and administered by Hunter Joe’s Archery Pro Shop.
Kings College 2013 will be very busy helping the bairns create their own “Build A Kilt” for their MacDolls and MacBears. Scottish crafts will have a new aura of fun with the Faeries on hand and will keep wee hands entertained. The Glasgow Green Stage will host a variety of child-friendly acts, and pipers, Scottish Fusiliers, Marines, REALLY Heavy Athletes, a group of re-enactors, Greenville Gaels, S.C. Hurling and Gaelic Football, Medieval Fighters and other assorted guests will be dropping by to visit with our bairns. Our wee ones will even have their own Celtic Rock band, Lissakeole, to play for them – and no, they will not exactly be playing lullabies --
The Not-So-Heavy Athletic Games will host the Wee Caber Toss, Sheep’s Toss, Rubber Hatchet Throw, and Stone Carrying, followed by the Kid’s Kilted Mile. The Sgurr Dearg Climbing Wall will be on hand for the venturesome kids, and we’ve added new attractions to the mix this year as well.
The “Robert the Bruce Misting Cave” will be available for cooling off after all the exhausting fun. Look for Shaemus, our new Wee Scotland mascot, who will be sporting his kilt and herding children.
