Tattoo triumph

The 31st annual Highland Games and Tattoo was held in Paeroa Domain on February 10. Thousands of people celebrated all things Scotland, with dancing, competitions, pipers and drummers, and a wealth of Scottish culture and food in the Clan Village.
The day finished with a three hour evening tattoo extravaganza. ALICE PARMINTER marched along to catch the festivities.

Rows of pipers and drummers weave through one another in an impressive display of precision and musical talent. Photo: ALICE PARMINTER
