Our Wee Bairns Area for the kids!
Back again in 2023!
St. Andrew’s Society of Detroit recognizes that children are our future. To help bring our heritage to them, our Highland Games created an area specially designed for them, Wee Bairns.
Wee Bairns events allow children to gain an understanding of our heritage while having fun.
The Wee Bairns area will be open for the children on Saturday, August 6, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Free Child Identification Service Available
The Livonia United Masonic Lodge #152 will be providing a child identification service for parents and grandparents with young children. It only takes a few minutes time and is at no cost. The parents walk away with a flash drive that contains the children’s fingerprints, and some info such as hair and eye color, height weight, and birthmarks. They also receive a recorded interview that shows the voice and facial patterns as they are asked questions about their school, friends, bike, where they like to play, favorite songs, etc. This can be invaluable in the case of a missing child. Stories are told every year about first hand experiences that this program has helped with. Look for the tent near the Wee Bairns area.
