The BC Highland Games and Scottish Festival is coming up on June 14th (free night) and June 15th (full day, ticketed festival) at Lafarge Lake in Town Centre Park in Coquitlam. I asked the organizers what to expect at this two-day fest of highland fun and they sent me the following list, which you won’t see at any other festival in Metro Vancouver this summer!

10 Things You Have to Experience at the BC Highland Games

The BC Highland Games is a competition, to determine the best musician, dancer, athlete or band.  It’s “BC’s Got Talent” on the pipes, in dance, in caber tossing and camaraderie. The bagpipe, highland dance and heavy event competitions are among the most demanding pursuits in the world. And in this tough world, winning is the goal. Surrounding this competitive core is a festival only the Scots can put on, welcoming everyone, from Bhangra dancers to performance pipe band! Don’t miss out on this fun weekend filled with activities for the whole family.
