Sun Beats Down on Fergus

Fergus, Ontario – August 10, 2002 – While many of North America’s pipers and drummers were at the World Pipe Band Championships, the venerable Fergus Highland Games, one of Ontario’s oldest and most well attended events, went on an hour northwest of Toronto.

Weather was stunning, with a cloudless sky and temperatures around 28 degrees. Prizes in the professional solo piping were divided between four or five players.
