Happy Birthday Rabbie

The Scottish pioneer memorial unveiled today at Riccarton House in Christchurch, home of the pioneer Deans family, on the immortal bard's 250th birthday.

The occasion was marked with a procession

Victorian and Edwardian costumes

Scottish dancing

and the addressing of the haggis: Great chieftain o' the pudding race

(and very tasty it was, too).
