1929 Higland Games Banff Springs Hotel Alberta [03:19]
Footage from my film collection I had digitally transferred from way back in 1929 of the Banff Highland Games. Games held at the Banff Springs Hotel. This was a 3 day event at the end of August including Scottish concerts and special Scottish meals at the hotel as well as standard events. There was always a church service conducted in the open air at the Devil's Cauldron conducted by Ralph Connor (Dr. CW Gordon). These were big events in all aspects. Pipers came from across the country and even a few from Scotland. So too with dancers, travelling long distance by train to attend these gatherings. Up to 8000 people flocked to the town of Banff and the Hotel to be a part of this festival, among the most highly acclaimed North American Highland Games in those years.
