The annual Highland Festival was held at the Richmond green on the 18-2-18, This event is Tasmania's only Highland gathering and I was lucky enough to be able to attend. This event consists of a number of competitions between local pipe bands, a number of stalls selling Scottish goods and food vans to feed the ever growing attendees.
Covered by the local news paper the Mercury they reported the following.
"Pipe Major David North, from the Tasmania Police Pipe Band, said the festival was a celebration of Scottish culture and Highlands heritage.
“In Tasmania we have a rich Scottish heritage and this is about the homeland, dancing and music,” he said.
“People go who want to see kilts and hear bagpipes played and the reception for that is amazing. The colourful highland dancers are great too.”
