Program announced for the Braemar Junior Games

Commenting, Junior Games organizer David Geddes said: “This Saturday the Braemar Junior Games return after a three-year absence.

“It’s free and it’s a great family day out. There’s a packed program of bagpipes, dancing, races, tug of war and opportunities to come and try out some of the traditional events – all under the watchful eye of expert instructors.

“Saturday evening we’ll end a great day with a family ceilidh at Braemar Village Hall – with instruction for children and novices and a refresher course for those who haven’t put on their dancing shoes for a while.”

He added: “We are looking forward to a great weekend!
