Best Costume Award
Did You Know that wearing a kilt would get you arrested?
Yes -- but that was in 1746! By decree of King George, Highland dress was outlawed by the passing of the Dress Act, with the intent of suppressing Highland culture. A first offence was a six-month in prison sentence; second offence was a seven-year exile to a work farm. The ban remained in effect for 35 years. Let's celebrate the lifting of the kilt (ban) in 1781. Come dressed in your best Scottish gear and you'll be eligible to win the "Best Costume" award and maybe even become a poster child for the race
