SALADO (January 23, 2013)--The second annual Robert Burns Supper will take place Saturday.

Burns Night, as it has become known, includes the “Piping in of the Haggis” and the "Address to a Haggis” in honor of Robert Burns' birthday on January 25, 1759.

The ceremony usually consists of the playing of bagpipes and giving a dramatic rendition of Burns' "Address to a Haggis."

Burns was a poet who wrote the piece "Auld Lang Syne" and still serves as a cultural icon to the people of Scotland and around the world.

The Central Texas Area Museum will hold Burns Night in the main dining room in the Stagecoach Inn from 7 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

The cost is $55 and will include speeches from dignitaries and the meal.

Guests may dress informally but are encouraged to wear something tartan, Highland attire or a formal evening dress.

For more information, call the museum at (254) 947-5232.
