We host a Parade Style competition, with bands from around Northeastern US and Canada, coming to compete for cash prizes.
Our Opening Ceremony boasts the largest mass bands in the region. Watch them parade, maneuver, and play in unison! No matter how many times you see this, it never grows old, 100+ pipers will send a chill up your spine.
Look for the Massed Bands during the Opening Ceremonies at 12:00 Noon. Plus every band plays Individually twice more throughout the day inj the Pipe Performance Area. So you get the pleasure (some call it the drone of cats being stepped on) of pipe bands playing from 9:30 in the morning till 5:30 in the evening! Such a Glorious Noise!
