Glengarry Highland Games

August 1, 2014
Maxville, ON, Canada

Since the first Games were held in 1948, the people of Glengarry have extended close to a million welcomes to visitors who come to see what is estimated to be one of the largest Highland Games in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people have found themselves drawn once a year to Maxville, to witness an outstanding display of music, dance, sports, fiddling, pageantry, and tradition. In the course of the day, more than 60 pipe bands are put through their paces to decide the North American Pipe Band Championships�, more than 200 dancers defy gravity in the Highland Dance competition and giants hurl telephone pole-sized cabers and 50 pound iron hammers around the infield. It is a memorable and incredible event.

TIP OF THE DAY
Don’t always expect a bag to be tight straight away. It needs worked upon and molded into shape and takes a little time to reach its peak state.
