Covid protocols: Park along the street around Square Corner Park and stay in your car. Roll down your car windows to hear the pipers and the blessing. Masks are required. This year no food or drink will be passed out.
BARC proudly presents the 16th Annual Scottish First Footing. Ring in the New Year with the Frederick Pipes and Drums selection of songs. At the stroke of Midnight, Auld Lang Syne will be played to welcome the New Year. There will be a traditional Scottish Blessing to the City of Brunswick and all who attend. No cost. Family Friendly.
The tradition says, if the first person to cross your threshold on New Year’s Eve is a a man, it will bring good luck. If the man has red hair, its even luckier. The man brings a bottle, a cake, and a lump of coal to ensure that there will be plenty to drink, eat, and enough heat throughout the New Year.
