Paeroa Highland Games and Tattoo
 

 

Scottish Clans

Eighteen Clans have confirmed their attendance at the 2017 Paeroa Highland Games & Tattoo, each with their separate tent and banners.

The Clan’s area is adjacent to the Pipe Bands contest at the southern end of the Paeroa Domain.

During the day there is an opportunity for people to meet the clans and check out their genealogy, perhaps get their clan history printed or a coat of arms.
