Celebrate the Scottish culture and heritage of the Ottawa Valley at the 37th annual North Lanark Highland Games in Almonte, Ontario. The Games offer a traditional format and size attracting about 3,000 visitors. Twenty pipe bands, a hundred dancers and champion heavyweight athletes combine to present what is recognized as one of the Ottawa Valley’s premier summer events.

With Mini-Highland Games and free admission for kids 11 & under, and the picturesque Mississippi River as the backdrop, the Almonte Games have a reputation not only as having the prettiest site but also as being the friendliest Games on the Ontario circuit.

2022 Duty Band

The Durham Regional Police Pipes & Drums


The Durham Regional Police Pipes & Drums was formed by Staff Sergeant Charlie Green and Sergeant Roy Good in 1996. The band wears the McAlpine tartan commemorating Chief Kevin McAlpine, the fourth Chief of the Durham Regional Police Service.

Most band members are civilian volunteers. They serve as ambassadors and represent the Service with pride wherever performing; be that at a formal police ceremony, local parade or pipe band competition. This group travels across the province to compete at various highland games. The pipe band’s mission is to represent and help foster the hard work and dedication characteristic of the Service.

Administration and management of the pipe section and the drum corps, as well as the teaching program, is under direction and leadership of Pipe Major and Durham Regional Police Constable Mike Lasseter and Lead Drummer Ted Berlinghoff.
