Americans of Scottish descent played a major role in the development of the United States, and their influence continues to be felt in all aspects of American life, from politics to music to scientific ingenuity. The United States Senate officially recognized the enormous contributions made by Scottish-Americans with the 1998 declaration of April 6 as Tartan Day, with the House Of Representatives following suit in 2005. Tartan Day is a major event in The Villages, with performances by pipe bands, Highland dancers, Scottish country dancers and much more -- and features Marcille Wallis & Friends (with Don Pigeon, Matt Miller and Kate Valley). Join the Parade of Tartans and head to The Villages for this fun-filled event!
