24 Piping and Drumming Hours In . . . Palmerston North, New Zealand

Published: July 31, 2011

Libby O’Brien of New Zealand begins our new “24 Hours In . . .” series of feature articles exclusively for subscribers to pipes|drums. We’re asking prominent pipers and drummers to highlight a single day of activities that they would recommend in a location that might be off the familiar path. If they had only one day in the place, how would the person spend the time and what would he/she recommend to others? Libby O’Brien chooses to look at a day at the Palmerston North “Square Day.” Other writers will take readers on must-see tours of cities for pipers and drummers, but here Libby takes a day to share her hour-by-hour experience at her favourite event in the world.
