Peel Police, Boyd on top at Cobourg Games

Good to be back. Barrie Pipes & Drums yesterday at a sunny Cobourg Highland Games.

Peel Regional Police won the Grade 2 competition at Cobourg Highland Games which took place yesterday in the picturesque town north east of Toronto and beside the shores of Lake Ontario. Andrea Boyd was the overall winner of the solo piping competition held for professional pipers.

It was the first time since the start of the pandemic that the games have taken place. A ceilidh was held on Friday night as part of what was the town’s 57th annual Scottish Festival.
