One of the largest Scottish Festivals in the Southern Hemisphere will take place in Hororata this month.

The Hororata Highland Games will be held at the Hororata Domain on November 11.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll said it is a cultural festival with something for everyone and this year will be no exception.

“The Scottish Heavy events are always an exciting and different sport for spectators with the best athletes in the world battling it out for the Oceania Heavyweight Championship,” she said.

Mrs Driscoll said it has one of the biggest Highland dancing competitions in the country which runs right throughout the day.

“The really cool thing about the games is not only can you watch all the different competitions, but you can have a go yourself,” she said.

This year the games falls on Armistice Day, in respect of this, there will be a remembrance held at 11am.

The Hororata Highland Game is a huge day out, with something to do right from gates opening at 9am until the closing ceremony at 4pm.
