If the thud of a tossed caber, the skirl of the pipes, or the lightness of highland dancers' feet isn't enough to satisfy your Celtic soul, the Games Grand Finale may be the tonic.
The Grande Finale is back for 2017 and will be celebrating the Scottish 150+ year contribution to building a nation. The event brings together the best of the day to parade, perform, sing and dance in front of the grandstand as the official competitions and fun come to a close. Everyone has a part - including you!.
The Grande Finale show will be led off by the official duty band, and conclude with the Massed Pipe Bands and Highland Dancers performance. We will also hold our draw for the raffle during the show, so have your tickets ready.
This great line-up of entertainment will end with a march to the beer garden where the entertainment continues with a wrap-up Ceilidh (and possibly a surprise performance from a few pipe bands) until 9:00 PM.
Just try to keep your seats during the show, which also includes
- Drum Salute by the SFU Pipe Band
- Highland Dancers Dem Team
- Royal Scottish Country Dancers
- SFU Pipe Band playing "Hallelujah"
- Massed Pipe Bands and Highland Dancers
- more TBA
