A tartaned clad bagpipe band marches along a road. The image doesn't show the heads of the all-male participants. It shows the bagpipers from the shoulders down, wearing black vests with silver square buttons. The tartan plan kilts are dark blue with green, purple and white patterns. Each piper wears a silver and black leather sporan, white knit socks up to the knee with red sashes and black leather lace-up kilt shoes. This photo is of members of the Fergus Pipe Band.

Everyone loves a parade!

The Pipes, Plaid and Pageantry Parade is the official kick off to the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games weekend each August.  A community parade winds through downtown Fergus, featuring live music from pipe and marching bands, colour parties, dancers and more. It’s a celebration of all things Scottish and its our way of welcoming you to our community.

The Parade starts at Highland Park (St David & Albert St E), goes North on St David St S, left on St Andrew St W and ends at the Fergus Legion where you are welcome to join in the festivities following the parade with many of the local pubs and restaurants pitching in to entertain and feed you! Many of the shops will be open for business too.
