Tartan Day South Draws Big Crowds in 2013

Columbia:  As the sounds of bagpipes cleared the air at the Sunday Morning  Kirkin of the Tartan Service at the West Columbia Amphitheater  the third annual Love Chevrolet’s Tartan Day South Festival drew to a close.  The festival drew a record crowd nearing 7,000 people over the three days of festival activities at the Amphitheater and the Historic Columbia Speedway.  The main event on Saturday was visited by just over 6,000 visitors from 12 states.  The longest acknowledged travelers were from Oronoco, Minnesota.  

“I believe the festival has grown because it is a fun and unique event in a great location that has something for all ages” states Gregg Pinner of the West Metro Chamber of Commerce.  The event included great live music, unusual athletics, shopping, demonstrations of falconry and sheep herding.  A large classic British Car Show, a Hurling Tournament, traditional dancing, kids rides filled the nine acre infield of the Historic Columbia Speedway.   

An odd mixture of activities melded in the middle of the main competition just past mid-day.  A falcon from the Birds of Prey demonstration perched on the tip of the 19 foot tall caber as it was about to be tossed.  A huge roar erupted from the large throng watching, alerted the athlete something was amiss.  “You will always see a little something different at Tartan Day South,” states John Banks event coordinator.  The large crowd stayed long and enjoyed a beautiful day and a little something for all ages.
