Crowds crammed into the beer tent at the rain-soaked Cambridge Highland Games following the Grade 1 band competition.

Cambridge, Ontario – July 19, 2014 – The 78th Fraser Highlanders continued their perfect season in Ontario with another win in Grade 1, this time at the annual Cambridge Highland Games.

MacDonald once again came away with the Professional Piper of the Day aggregate prize. Elizabeth Shaw was Professional Snare Drummer of the Day.
