The Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival in Sedgewick, Alta. was one of pride and whimsy as approximately 1,000 people attended the third annual event. It was held in and around the Wild Rose Co-op Recreation Centre on Sat. Aug. 21 and included the Battle River Pipes and Drums, heavy sports events, highland dancers, artisan vendors, food trucks, an Irish Wolfhounds petting area, an outdoor blacksmith shop and more. The day started with an opening ceremony led by the Battle River Pipes and Drums with a traditional sound.
