Saturday 9th February 2019, 9am to 9pm, at the Paeroa Domain, 12 hours of entertainment!
This year’s special guest include Marian Burns and her Band, Bay Silver Pans (Steel Drum Band), Highly Flammable (Stilt Walker, Fire performers, and Mythical creatures).
We also see the return of the Junior Highland Games, with teams from all the local primary schools taking part.
The 26th Annual Paeroa Highland Games & Tattoo will be held on Saturday 9th February 2019 at the Paeroa Domain. What started out as a small Pipe Bands Competition has grown over the years, and today is a fully-fledged Highland Games, one of only seven such Scottish gatherings in New Zealand, and the only one in New Zealand to hold an Evening Tattoo.
This celebration of Scottish culture is attracting interest throughout New Zealand as well as internationally. Attendance numbers have shown steady growth to a record 8,000 in both 2013 and 2015. It is now a major undertaking by a small team of passionate volunteers who believe in putting something back into the community in which they live.
