OP&D to compete in World Pipeband Championships in Scotland

The Omaha Pipes and Drums is traveling to Scotland to participate in the World Pipeband Championships on August 11-12th in Glasgow Green park. The World Pipe Band Championships is the pinnacle of Pipe Band competition and is the biggest and best event of its kind where thousands of pipers and drummers compete.

The Band will also enter the piping competitions in North Berwick (August 5th) and Bridge of Allan (August 6th).

At the conclusion of the competitions in North Berwick, all the pipe bands parade into the centre of the arena to salute the Chieftain of the day and then form up into a massed band of over 1,000 pipers and drummers.

Bridge of Allan is one of Scotland’s premier Highland Games, attracting crowds of between 8,000 and 10,000 people. The games field nestles between Stirling Castle – Scotland’s grandest historic attraction, the beautiful Ochil Hills and the National Wallace Monument, made famous by the blockbuster movie, Braveheart.

The Omaha Pipes and Drums is proud to promote Omaha, NE on an international stage.

Nothing stirs the emotions like the sound of Bagpipes!
