The Piccadilly is so much fun, and brings lots of excitement into hoping your number gets called for the over 100 wonderful donation prizes given by all the local businesses in Glasgow and surrounding areas.


When the events in town are going on, it’s amazing to see the people everywhere enjoying the historic tours and local aspects Glasgow has to offer.  There’s even a real horse drawn wagon that brings Santa in for the Boat Parade.


The beauty and nature and history of Glasgow gets me excited, there’s so many friendly people to meet.  From walking on the track to enjoying the new baseball field to power walkers around town.  I love to see everyone enjoying!
