Kuala Lumpur Highland Games 2017Sun 7 May 2017
This annual event is organised by the Selangor St. Andrew’s Society and will be held this year on May 7 at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort from 8am to 4pm with an official opening ceremony at noon. Repeat visitors will know what to expect and first-timers will be excited to know that there will be a great line-up of unique events originating from the highlands of Scotland.
If past years’ events are anything to go by, an expected 4, 000 spectators will attend to watch the international pipe and drums band competition, the hotly anticipated tug-of-war event and a junior rugby tournament. The highlight will be the traditional highland sporting contest featuring Scottish heavies (professional strongmen) who will pit their skills and strength in events like caber tossing, hammer throwing and shot putt. All this in their kilts!
This is a real family day out and the kids will be well entertained by a dedicated play area that will feature rides, inflatables and fun games; there will also be a wide selection of food and beverage stalls. Tickets will be available on the day at the entrance at RM20 for adults and RM5 for children under 12. Or head to their website to purchase tickets online in advance.
