On Saturday, May 21, 2016 the Annual Clan Torchlight Ceremony will take place at the Legislature Grounds to acknowledge those clans involved in the Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival at Topaz Park.
Starting at the front of the Legislature Buildings at 8 pm, the Games duty pipe band (LA Scots - best pipeband in the USA) will perform in front of the Legislature steps. Following the performance, clan representatives will announce their clan’s presence at the Games and received a lit torch. Each clan representative will take their torch onto the Legislature lawns where, collectively, they will form a Scottish Saltire. Once the clan representatives are finished, the Games duty pipe band will finish the ceremony off with a short performance.
Twenty clans participated in the 2015 Torchlight Clan Ceremony. All citizens of Scottish background are invited to attend the ceremony wearing their tartan and support the Clans! This is a free event open to the public.
