IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have 31 pipe bands competing, with 600-700 pipers and drummers on the field at opening and closing ceremonies. As a result, we expect there could be a delay for those entering the Park in time for Opening Ceremonies at 11:30. Please plan accordingly, and allow extra time. Our volunteers collecting tickets at the gate do the best they can, and try and speed things up, but there will be delays. We do not want you to miss the Ceremonies if at all possible. All parking is free, and on the Ball Field, not far from the Ceremonies.
