Edmonton, Alberta – July 9, 2017 – The annual Northern Canadian Pipe Band Championships were held on the grounds of the historic Fort Edmonton with balmy, summer weather attracting large crowds over the two-day event. Conditions were sunny, hot and dry with scorching heat. With temperatures hovering around the +30C mark for much of both days, Environment Canada issued heat warnings for the city of Edmonton and area. It was a small turnout with few soloists and only five bands in attendance. Rocky Mountain of Calgary continued their successful season, hoisting the 2017 Northern Canadian Championship, an aggregate of both days’ events.
