However, locals would have to wait much longer than a month to see the return of the statue. Rather than return home straight away, Crusoe went on an adventure to the Glasgow Garden Festival - which ran from 26 April to 26 September 1988. Below is an image of the statue being placed on site at the festival prior to its official opening (next to Selkirk descendent Allan Jardine). Crusoe was located in the 'Water and Maritime' themed section of the festival, alongside tall ships, Navy ships and water-sports. This sector of the event aimed to showcase "Scotland's rich history of maritime trade and exploration".
