With all the charm of Scottish heritage, the annual Robbie Burns Night celebration is set to take place at the legion Saturday night.
“I love it. It’s just so much fun,” said the legion’s head bartender, Chrissy Folland, who will have worked Robbie Burns night 10 years in a row after this weekend’s event.
“It’s a blast. Everybody has a good, old-fashioned time.”
Cocktails are at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 7 p.m. with the traditional Scottish fare of roast Black Angus beef, neeps (turnips), bashed tatties (mashed potatoes), peas, and, of course, haggis.
Dessert is traditional Scottish trifle and short bread.
There will be several entertainers during the evening including the Williams Lake Pipe Band, as well as toasts, songs and the piping in of the haggis. A dance will follow with Perfect Match.
Tickets are available at the legion, however, there are only a few left.
“It’s always a sell-out,” said Folland.
Burns was a Scottish poet and lyricist who continues to be celebrated worldwide for his work. He lived from 1759 to 1796.
