Waipu Highland Games

Highland-games

1 January every year since 1871 thousands of people descend on the small northland village of Waipu to celebrate the Waipu Highland Games.  

It is a fabulous summer day out where you can stroll the Avenue of Clans, watch the Heavyweights toss the Caber, listen to some fiddlers, join in some Scottish Country dancing, watch the Tartan in the Park fashion show,  tap your toes to the Highland Fling, or join the all age athletics competition.  There is something for everyone.  More about the Games

    I left my wives purple umbrella in the Celtic Barn second row of seats back from the front on the right side about 4pm Today 1-1-16. It has UWMC Nursing in gold letters on the cloth material. Wondering if there is a lost and found or a way I could get it back.
