A fantastic show;' always impressive. International performers from around the world. The 60 or so bagpipers in a closed area is quite mind boggling

What a show. Never a dull moment. Seamless, so always seeing something. Very well performed and can't wait to see next year's show. I was totally moved!

Awesome event , occurs every year the first week of July. Enjoyable bands, including pipes and drums, the famous gun run with the navy versus the army, acrobatic acts and various acts from all over the world. Well worth a visit.
