Boston ‘Kilt Crawl’s’ linksto Stonehaven
Participants of the first annual “Angry Scotsman” Kilt Crawl through Boston, Massachusetts, pose for a photograph at their final stop.
The crawl through the Jamaica Plain neighbourhood of the New England city ended at The Haven, on September 13.
The event was a benefit for the Scots’ Charitable Society and Charitable Irish Society, and included stops at four local establishments ending at The Haven restaurant, which is owned by former Stonehaven resident Jason Waddleton (second row, third from right).
Organizer Jason Keith, (seated, centre), and his wife, Kate Flock, were married at Dunnottar Castle in 2008 and it was one of the sponsors of the event.
Held in honour of the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, participants, wearing kilts or tartan, and led by a bagpiper and drummer, walked along a 1.7mile route.
The ‘crawl’ took them round four local establishments with raffles, prizes, music and singing along the way.
Founded in 1657, The Scots’ Charitable Society is the oldest charitable organization still existing in the Western Hemisphere. It awards undergraduate scholarships to the Scottish-American community and provides relief to individuals and Scots’ families in need. http://scots-charitable.org/about-2/
