Purchase your tickets in advance and then come to Town Centre Park on Saturday for the fun. Take the train to the Games. There’s a free bike valet. There’ll be activities for kids, food vendors (include veggie options), Scottish and other national foods, check out the British cars, listen to the performances on three stages including the new Heritage Stage, or watch the heavy athletes throw big objects all over the Lew Ross Field. Hang on to your seats for the massed pipe bands flowing down onto the fields around 5:30, and the pipers ceilidh in the big tent afterwards with Beolach.
There are activities for the bairns, èildears and everyone in between.
So come for the pipes and stay for the haggis & bru. And maybe a pint or two with new and old friends.
