Archive: Auckland Highland Games 2004
Saturday 20 November 2004
Pipe band at the GamesThe Auckland Highland Games in 2004 were held at the Three Kings Reserve, Auckland on Saturday 20 November. As always the weather was kind to those who joined us to celebrate our Scottish heritage.

MacRaes were very thin on the ground but we did have visits from several interested people, one lady who was born near Eilean Donan Castle and several others who were born in the area and knew it well. We also had visits from children who said “my granny” (mum, Aunt) was a MacRae (nice to see young people seem to be becoming more aware of their heritage!). The crowd was large and from all ethnic backgrounds.

During the Opening Ceremony we had a clan march, Gaelic welcome and an address from the Deputy Mayor of the City of Auckland. Throughout the day there were children’s games, historic battles, celtic bands, log lifting, highland stone lifting, caber tossing and tossing the sheaf. Competitions held were highland dancing, pipe band, solo piping, haggis hurling and the tug-o-war.
