Jenny Mair Highland Square Day ~ Palmy

The Jenny Mair Highland Square Day is the biggest pipe band contest in NZ, next to the national championships. It is an annual contest of 20 highland pipe bands and scores of contestant solo bagpipers, solo drummers and highland dancers of all ages. This year will mark its 37th year since it was first contested. The Highland Dancing events, Solo Piping and Drumming events commence before the performance of all competing bands. Following that, all competing bands march around The Square. The Massed Bands and prizegiving ceremony are the final event of the Square Day (credit to EventfindaNZ and Manawatu Scottish Community).
