    Long Beach Pride Parade - 5-20-18

    I participated in the Long Beach Pride Parade on Sunday. I was in the parade with South Coast Chorale, a mixed-voice LBGT choir, promoting our upcoming parody show. We all more matching t-shirts, and the colors went well with my Sport Kilt in Wallace tartan. I went extremely casual, wearing walking shoes with no-show socks, and my black kilt belt and bronze buckle.

    I did see a few kilts along the parade route. Although I saw a good number of utility kilts in the crowd, I saw a good amount of more traditional looking tartan kilts, as well.

    I remember a discussion where other kilted folks (during parades, hiking and other events that required distance walking) wore a sporran on their hip rather than in front of the apron. Other members have bags with shoulder straps for carrying personal items. I see you have neither. Are there inner pockets kilt pockets or do you live like most of us would like (as in off the grid and device free)?

    I assume from your smile that a good time was had.

    I had additional inner pockets added when I purchased this kilt. I considered wearing my new Wyvern Leatherworks sporran, but I didn't want to risk damaging it while putting the final touches on our parade entry vehicle. This was an extremely casual look for me, for certain!

    And yes, we had a great time! The weather was cloudy during our preparations, but it cleared up as the parade started to make its way down the boulevard.

    Looking good!

    I did a gig once with the South Coast Chorale (I'm a piper) but I can't now recall the exact venue or what tune I played.

    As best I recall it was in one of those ornate 100-year-old churches, and I played some hymn on the uilleann pipes.

    That was probably at the First Congregational Church on 3rd and Cedar in Long Beach. The Chorale has performed many, many shows there. That's neat that you've played a show with the Chorale!

    I love gigs like that.

    And I was honoured to accompany them on a hymn- they were VERY good, very professional.
