Rocky Mountain at the peak of Red Deer

Red Deer, Alberta – June 27, 2015 – The outdoor Alberta pipe band season kicked off with the annual Red Deer Highland Games attracting bands and soloists from across the province. Weather was hot and dry with temperatures hovering near 30 in the heat of the afternoon. The Grade 2 “Battle of Alberta” proved to be an excellent contest with all bands making it out. Rocky Mountain came out on top with a convincing win.
