Saturday night, over 200 people gathered to celebrate the birthday of the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. The opening ceremony was followed by roast beef supper, music by the children’s pipes and drums band - No. 2901 Estevan Elks Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry, which united with the adult’s Kilted Wind Pipe Band for the main part of the performance. The Drewitz School of Dance also added colours to the night. Celebrations dedicated to Robert Burns’ birthday have been going in Estevan since 1978. These nights out are popular in many places in Canada. Every year people come together to celebrate the poet and his work, as well as Scottish culture and traditions.
