Also featured is the Border Collie Exhibition which is one of the most entertaining events of any Scottish or Scotch-lrish Festival, especially for the children. This year we are indeed fortunate to have Bill Coburn and his award-winning dogs. Joy has won the South Carolina Border Association two years back to back and Bud won this past year. Bill and his dogs have performed throughout North and South Carolina.
