The 2016 Braemar Junior Highland Games are going to be held on Saturday 9th July this year.
The Junior Highland Games has been organised to allow children between the ages of 5 and 18 the opportunity to participate in games events normally reserved for adults and hopefully create interest for the future generations. The emphasis is on fun and is intended to provide educational experiences in an informal and participative way. The event will be held in the Braemar Games Field and has backing of The Braemar Highland Society.
Children will be able to participate as well as receive education and instruction in a number of traditional games events overseen by qualified instructors.
New competitors are welcome and instruction is provided. Events include highland dancing competition, piping competition and tug of war teams events followed by an evening family marquee ceildh dance.
There will be a Family Ceilidh in the Village Hall on Saturday evening starting at 7.30pm until 11pm with music from the Kinnaird Ceilidh Band. Tickets at the door priced at Adults £5, Children £2 and Family (2 adults & 2 children) £10. Bring your own refreshment.
