2015 GAMES – A look back.
The sun shined, the bands sounded great, the beer and cider was cold and a huge crowd was on hand June 20th at Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam for the 84th annual BC Highland Games & Scottish Festival. We had one of the largest crowds in recent memory; families, young folks, seniors and guests from around the region, all there to enjoy the sunshine, music, competition, food, children’s activities, heavy events, vendors and of course, the two beer gardens.
Thank you to everyone who attended and for filling out our Games survey. Your opinions will go a long way towards making the BC Highland Games & Scottish Festival an even better event in the future.
Congratulations to all the piping, drumming, highland dancing, and heavy event athletes. We look forward to hosting you again on June 18, 2016.
CARE TO VOLUNTEER IN 2016?
The 84th Games may be over, but the planning has already begun for our 85th games. Our organizing team, along with our parent organization, the United Scottish Cultural Society, will continue to meet throughout the year to plan our next games and other events throughout the year (St. Andrews’s Day, Robert Burns, etc.) We always need volunteers, either as organizers or volunteers on the field during the day.
Contact our new volunteer coordinator Leslie Neill if you, your friends or family want to help out. We would love to have you join us as we celebrate all that is Scottish and Celtic in British Columbia.
