Yes, again
this year those mythical Haggis will be hiding throughout the stadium
grounds
for the wildest hunt you have ever seen. 
Spot enough and you become an Official Haggis Hunter!  They are elusive,
fast, and can usually
be found lurking around Tartan.

Highland

dancers, drummers, pipers and throwers are back to defend their titles. 
The caliber of sport is exhilarating!

Our

Both will be playing on the main

local talent and showcase our deep talent pool here in BC.

even a
