The 13th Pipes & Drums Festival took place over two days from 2 to 3 December 2016 at Victoria Secondary School. This year, we have a total of 165 soloists (of which 11 are in the above 18 category) and 13 bands competing to play their best tunes for the Adjudicators. It is our privilege to have Mr Jack Lee and Reid Maxwell from Simon Fraser University Pipe Band in Canada to grade these participants.
