Larger crowds than ever turned out for the 25th Gathering of the Bands this year. Many bands came to Victoria Park in Kincardine throughout the day. The Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band and community volunteers provided all you can eat hot dogs and corn. There was great entertainment from the Kincardine Community Band, the Toronto All Stars Band, the Pleats and a number of visiting pipe bands. Pipers and drummers continued to converge on Victoria Park throughout the day, culminating in a massive parade of 280 pipers and drummers! Piping and drumming could be heard well into the evening after the parade.
