Tartan Day

The 2010 Tartan Day Festival, held Saturday in Jonesborough, saw plenty of activities and events featuring Scottish heritage, including more than a dozen hairy legs. Several men, and even a tiny tot, participated in the ‘Best Legs in a Kilt’ contest, pictured above. Female judges were blindfolded and had to feel each contestant’s legs to determine the winner. In the end, Cody Honeycutt (fourth from left) took first place while baby Colin Malone Francis earned a second-place finish. Also at the event, members of the Jericho Highlanders Pipe Band, including Gary “Greenbean” Melvin, at left, filled the air with Scottish music.
