Celebrating sunset with Goderich’s pipe band
The Goderich Celtic Blue Highlanders will once again be bidding adieu to the sun on Friday nights in Goderich at the piping down the sun event.
Held at the Rotary Beach, the southern-most beach in Goderich, just outside of the Rotary Wheelhouse, the members of the Celtic Blue Highlanders play their bagpipes through the sunset.
The events run eight Fridays between July 6 and August 24 and originally started out as an idea by former Goderich Tourism Manager Bob Marshall who thought one piper would be nice, but the Celtic Blue Highlanders took it to a whole new level. They committed most of their band.
The event has evolved over the years and now the pipers will march in, play a few tunes and then pipe down the sun.
The event is fun for all ages as children can play games while they enjoy the tunes and older listeners can sit and relax and listen. The spectacle can also be taken in from the cliffs above at the park at the end of Sunset Drive.
