Dunedin Military Tattoo will feature all things Scottish on Saturday

DUNEDIN

The Dunedin Military Tattoo — a musical massing of Scottish clans, flags, pipers, dancers and drummers — will take over Dunedin High School's stadium Saturday night.

It kicks off a week of Scottish-oriented events, culminating with the 45th annual Dunedin Highland Games April 9 at Highlander Park.

For the second year in a row, the Tattoo's featured band will be the U.S. Marine Corps Logistics Band from Albany, Ga. Formed in 1990, it is one of 12 bands in the Marine Corps. Each year, the 50-member ceremonial ensemble travels tens of thousands of miles to perform at scores of venues throughout the United States.

The event also will feature the Second Time Arounders, a well-known St. Petersburg-area marching band of adults who originally marched in high school, college and military bands.

A variety of other kilt-clad groups will perform, including bands from Dunedin's middle and high schools, the city's pipe band, and others.
