Just as everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day, everyone is a wee bit of a Scot during the Annual Scottish Festival at Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa today and Sunday. We can't all have names that begin with Mac, but don't let that stop you from attending. Robert A. Reoch, the organizer of this year's event and "Chieftain of the Games" for the last seven years, has never let it stop him.

The City of the Arts is preparing to welcome the Vienna Philharmonic, generally considered one of the world's five best concert orchestras. City officials on Monday agreed to make an exception to municipal codes and allow red and white banners welcoming the symphony to fly from Jan. 17 through March 6, 19 days longer than the 30-day limit typically enforced for promotional material in a public right of way.

Kindergarten-age baton twirlers decked out in sequins, the El Bekal Shrine Temple Ali Baba Sheiks, and more than a dozen school bands from across the Los Angeles Basin marched past delighted crowds under a beating sun Saturday at the 49th annual Lions Parade Spectacular. The parade was part of a three-day fish fry and carnival that began Friday and continues today in Lions Park.

Two centuries after Paul Revere warned that the British were coming, they were greeted with cheers and merriment here Saturday. Marching to the strains of "Bonnie Dundee," the Royal Highland Fusiliers pipe-and-drum band led a procession down Town Center Drive to officially start the two-day Great British Food Fest at Town Center Park. The outdoor festival--an admission-free event ending today--is part of the monthlong celebration honoring the culture and arts of the United Kingdom.

The City Council this week approved spending up to $40,000 to finance the city's 47th annual Fish Fry parade and carnival scheduled in May but warned that there is no firm financial commitment for the event next year. Officials say they are facing a $1-million deficit in the 1992-93 budget and may be forced to eliminate or reduce funding for Costa Mesa's biggest community event.

The 3-year-old boy was too shy to talk to strangers, but when the band started playing, his inhibitions were cast off. He snapped his fingers, wiggled, and began to shuffle his feet--all to the soothing melody of Scottish bagpipes. Others were not as exuberant as the child or the bagpipers in kilts, but the smiles on the listeners' faces reflected their enjoyment of the traditional music featured at the 59th Annual Scottish Festival.

The 47th annual Fish Fry is scheduled this weekend with its traditional offerings of marching bands, carnival rides and, of course, Canadian cod. More than 100,000 people are expected to swarm to Lions Park during the three-day festival, which will start at 5:30 p.m. Friday with the serving of the first fish dinner. For $5, people will get a full helping of cod, plus a chance to win several prizes, including the grand prize: a 1992 Ford Mustang LX.
