Jenny Mair Highland Square Day
Square Day was instituted in 1980 by Dennis Pierce and Briar Hamilton, members of the Manawatu Scottish Society Pipe Band. It had a small beginning with only two bands, but has grown steadily and now has around twenty entries. The venue, Palmerston North Square, is a lovely setting of 4 acres of park, in the centre of the city. It is always held on the second Saturday in December. It has a reputation amongst the bands, of being a relaxed and well run competition.
