Commencing 6.30pm

The highlight for many attending will be the evening Tattoo. This two and a half hour evening variety spectacular, complete with the Paeroa Castle, is based on the famous Edinburgh Tattoo in Scotland.

Let the Tattoo begin!
The opening segment features the first of two Massed Band displays with 250 pipers and drummers and is sure to stir the blood and sends tingles down the spine. During the evening Tattoo, a Trans Tasman Caber challenge will be contested between the two Australians and two Kiwis.
Can the Auzzies restore their pride and win back the title?

Other performers include Highland Dancers, Celtic singers, Mace flourishing, Pipe Bands displays, Ode to the Haggis, with further acts to be confirmed. The Tattoo closes with the “Lone Piper” playing, and the singing of “Old Lang Syne”.
