Saturday August 15th, we made our way around the corner to the Glasgow Green for a really entertaining competitive event involving pipe bands from around the world. The Simon Fraser University Pipe band won last year, and we saw them perform and win it again this year. Glasgow has hosted the World Pipe Band Championships for the last 60 years.
In addition to the piping competition there were several strong-man competitions. These guys had to throw a weight backwards over their heads over what looked like a very tall high-jump bar.
