Saturday 23rd June saw the third annual Ulster Scots Games Day in Ballymoney hosted by the Kingdom of Dalriada Ulster Scots Society. After a damp start, the growing crowds were entertained by Dunaghy Accordian Band, Garvagh Pipe Band, the acclaimed Ulster Scots Experience orchestra and the Bendooragh Lambeg Drummers. Other performers included the Purple Thistle Ulster Scots Dancers from Bready, the Border Reevers Re-Enactment Group and Big Jim Mattison, baker of traditional Ulster breads.
Games included tug-o-war, tossing the caber, throwing the wellie and throwing the sheaf and Horse Shoes. Children's entertainment came in the form of face painting, balloon modelling and bouncy castles. A day worth going to and one to watch out for next year!
