Where and what is Scotland, USA, you say?... Let me tell you all about Alma - Scotland USA! In the middle of everything is Alma, Michigan, otherwise referred to as Scotland, USA! That's what the sign says, that's what we stick with and that's what we celebrate! Now is a great time to mention, if you haven't been to a Highland Festival yet, it's time you go!
For as long as I can remember, I looked forward to the time when Alma came alive to the sound of bagpipes. As a child, it wasn't uncommon to hear a bagpiper practicing off in the distance while playing at the many parks in town. And we were always looking forward to the annual Highland Festival and Games each Memorial Day Weekend!
It is time to dust off your party pants, Spring Culture Festival time is here! Spring is kicking off celebrations of heritage and cultural pride, exactly as it should be! Michigan doesn't fall short when it comes to fun cultural celebration, look forward to the Summer Culture Celebrations list coming out soon!
