highland fling

It's a good thing I like bagpipes. A Fredericton summer tradition for more than 30 years, every summer on the last weekend of July the New Brunswick Highland Games takes up residence at Government House just a block from my house.  This year the games were the largest in the Maritimes in terms of competitors which included 15 bands who assembled for the massed bands opening ceremony.  We couldn't have asked for better weather for the competitions as crowds turned out to celebrate the Scottish heritage.

Maybe next year I'll attempt the haggis...

The NB Highland Games are in the running in West Jet's contest for best Canadian festivals.  Have you voted?
