Coquitlam, British Columbia – June 15, 2019 – While most of the rest of the continent was under cool weather and rain, the 2019 BC Highland Games & Scottish Festival enjoyed hot and sunny conditions at Lafarge Lake Park where 125 soloists and 14 bands competed.

Alastair Lee and Grant Maxwell had the best days in the top solo piping and snare drumming events, respectively. The Open Piobaireachd was held on the Friday evening.

The massed bands at the end of the day were held at the park’s TD Community Plaza, attended by a large crowd.
