Glengarry Highland Games return July 29-30

This summer, for the 64th year, the farming community of Maxville, Ontario will host one of North America's biggest highland games.

The theme for 2011 is: "The Year of the Clans". Those with family tartans are encouraged to come and march. And everyone is welcome to learn more about Scottish culture and heritage.

This year's games will take place on Friday and Saturday (July 29-30). Maxville, Ontario is 45 minutes north of Cornwall, or an hour east of Ottawa.

The old favorites will be back: competition, displays, and day-into-night music, dance and athleticism. This year organizers have added a harp workshop that's open to all. The musical guests include a well-known family group from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia: The Barra MacNeils.

Lucy Martin brings us a sampler from last summer's games (2010).  Go to full article
