The 17th Annual New York Tartan Day Parade today was a smashing success. From the sounds of pipes and drums at the pre-parade concert at Bryant Park to the Westies and Scotties of the Barbour Tartan Dog Pack to the over 300 Outlander fans who came out to support Grand Marshal Graham McTavish, the day was a true celebration of Scottish culture and spirit!
