Hororata Highland Games and Display
Saturday 4th November 2023

IMG_5556 Highland Games display 2022.JPG

The Hororata Highland Games are a fantastic day out and are regarded by many as the best Highland Games outside of Scotland. If you haven’t been before and you can get there in a Veteran or Vintage car, then now’s your chance.

Where you start your run is up to you, but all cars will be required to arrive at the Cenotaph about 1km north of at Hororata on the Coalgate to Hororata Road at 10.00am. Once there the cars and motorcycles will be lined up for the drive down the road to the showgrounds and make a grand parade entrance at 10.30am.

Once there, all vehicles will do a parade lap and then be parked up for display. You will then be free to participate in and enjoy a fantastic day out.

Entertainment includes the various Highlands events, great music for all tastes and various vendors of food and beverages including whiskey tasting. Bring your picnic lunch or patronise the food stall holders

A special entrance price has been arranged and venue entrance wrist bands will be part of the rally pack. The special entry price of $12.00 pp is only available to rally entrants and their passengers. These wrist bands will not be accepted at any of the entrance gates (public entry is $30.00pp). Also your entry means your commitment to remain on display

until 4:00pm. Sorry, there are no exceptions to this requirement as the event finishes at 4.00pm and they want everyone there until then.

Vehicles of Vintage era (up to 1932) and earlier are eligible.

Feel free to wear Scottish regalia and to dress your vehicle up for the occasion. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the club and our members to display our vehicles to the large number of spectators that attend the games.

Get your entry in early because the numbers will be limited.

Anyone requiring further information please contact Colin Hey
