VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – The Tidewater Pipes and Drums is hosting its 2nd annual Tartan Day concert in Virginia Beach Thursday.

The concert is April 6 at 6 p.m. at Mount Trashmore Park, 310 Edwin Drive.

Tartan Day is a North American celebration of Scottish heritage. It is held on April 6, the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath, also known as the Scottish Declaration of Independence was signed in 1320.
