Fun and Games

The 30th annual Highland Games and Tattoo was held in Paeroa Domain on February 11. The festival ran from 9am-9pm. Participants piped, danced, paraded and competed in heavyweight field events across the day, resplendent in tartans of all different clans. There was plenty of entertainment all day, followed by the Evening Tattoo. ALICE PARMINTER was there.
