It was an impressive site as nine pipe bands from across the B.C. Interior marched down Mackenzie Avenue during the Spring Fling on Saturday.

The annual gathering of pipe bands, which started in Revelstoke in 1975, returned to town for the first time in a decade. It started with the parade from downtown to Queen Elizabeth Park – nine pipe bands marching side-by-side, with bagpipes blaring and drums pounding. Once at the park, the competitive side of the event took place, where teams were judged on their playing ability and more.

The Kalamalka Highlanders band from Vernon won the competition, edging out the Kamloops Pipe Band for the Spring Fling title.

“It was an awesome day. Mother nature really co-operated,” said Revelstoke Highlanders Pipe Major Archie McConnachie. “Things went very well for us.”
