Moose Jaw & Regina, Saskatchewan – May 18, 2014 – The Saskatchewan Highland Gathering & Celtic Festival drew a small number of bands and soloists from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta to events in Moose Jaw on Saturday and Regina on Sunday. An expanded festival setting for both days provided nice crowds of spectators for the band and other events, and the sometimes-challenging May long weekend weather was good for both days.
