Kingston, Ontario – May 26, 2012 – The annual Kingston Scottish Festival was held again in spectacular weather before a larger crowd than ever. The event is run independently of an association, but applies most essential rules of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario. For the first time in its 10-year history, the competition held a Grade 1 band event, attracting three competitors. The Peel Regional Police Pipe Band emerged victorious over Medley and MSR contests, each critiqued by four adjudicators who assessed bands strictly on ensemble.
