Archive: Paeroa Highland Games and Tatoo 2004
Saturday 14th February 2004
It was undecided at 5.30am if the 11th Paeroa Highland Games and Tattoo would go ahead as there was thunder and lightning and it was pouring with rain. But the organisers pushed ahead despite the wild weather lashing the region.

While spectator numbers were down most events went ahead as scheduled. The Highland Dancing was shifted in doors due to the slippery wooden floors but virtually everything else went as planned.

The day started with dancing followed by an axemanÂ’s carnival and a mid-day street march before the caber and sheaf tossing competitions.

The highlight was the evening tattoo, performed in a mock castle made from steel and canvas and modelled on the famous Edinburgh Tattoo. Twelve pipe bands from Taupo to Whangarei took part in the Tattoo, the finale of the massed bands playing together was moving.
