There's plenty of fun and activities for the kids and little ones at the Games. The BC Highland Games has always been a family event, with lots to do for adults, and the kids.
We have a special children's area set aside to keep the wee ones entertained and occupied during your visit. There's a swing ride, a bouncy castle and that great Scottish game of Kid's Golf.
And there's more. The BC Highland Games face painters will be back, along with the border collies rounding up all those pesky sheep. And again this year, a "Kidditch" game for all kids to learn the classic Harry Potter game of Quidditch (following the adult demonstration match at 1:30pm).
This year, the BCHG is teaming up with Prostate Cancer Canada and their "Plaid for Dad" event to raise awareness of prostate cancer. PCC is dedicated to the elimination of the most common cancer in men through research, advocacy, education, support and awareness. Volunteers will be helping to run an expanded children's program at the 2017 highland games.
And if your kids would like to try the bagpipes, drumming or highland dancing, there will be opportunities to do that at the Highland Pavilion at the south end of the field. Or pick up a wooden sword and learn some basic sword-fighting moves from the experts.
And of course, the most popular kids event is the Haggis Hunt. Get your entry card from the souvenir program and travel around to the various vendors looking for the elusive Haggis which hides in all kinds of crafty places. There are prizes!
