This year the Springfield Missouri Central High School Kilties will be performing on the second stage from 12:30pm-1:00pm. Founded by the music director R. Ritchie Robertson, a native of Scotland, in 1926, they’ve been playing their booming drums, proud trumpets and chilling bagpipe sounds since 1926. Add synchronized marching, tartans and kilts, and you have one of the oldest traditions in Springfield high school football – performing at sporting events, parades and memorial services, and are a fixture at their high school home games.
Saturday, March 10 — 10:00am – 10:00pm
Sunday, March 11 — 10:00am – 7:00pm
