Highland Games in Verdun this Sunday

From the caber toss to the Scottish fiddle to the tug-of-war, there’s something for everyone at the Montreal Highland Games, which will take place on the grounds of the Douglas Hospital in Verdun, on August 4th from 9am. There are several related events leading up to the big day; if you were out and about in Verdun on Thursday you might have witnessed the Promenade of Cabers on Wellington, or the Scots in the Park celebration outside the borough hall on Verdun ave.
Tonight, Friday, August 2, at 8 pm, you’re invited to a Wee Cèilidh just before the big weekend! Bagpipers, fiddlers, dancers and more. Location: Burgundy Lion Pub, 2496 Notre Dame Street West, Montreal.
