Tartan Day Parade

The 12th New York National Tartan Day Parade was held today featuring pipe bands, individual pipers and drummers, kilted men, Scottish groups, and Scottie and Westie dogs. The event is a celebration of Scottish history and culture in America. The parade started at 2:00pm stepping off from 45th Street and marching up 6th Avenue ending at 55th Street. The parade is the first to be subject to the new Police Department rule of curtailing the parade route by 25% because of the city's budget deficit.
