The community ceilidh hosted by the Williams Lake Pipe Band Saturday evening at the Gibraltar Room was sold out with 300 people in attendance.
Master of ceremonies Jason Ryll entertained the crowd and introduced the rich assortment of entertainers.
As might be expected the event opened with performances by the Williams Lake Pipe Band filling the room with the trill of bagpipes, which were somehow not overpowering in the acoustically sound enhanced Gibraltar Room.
Solo pipers were Mike Berns from the Williams Lake Pipe Band, and world class piper Rob Menzies from the Simon Fraser Pipe Band who played the penny whistle as well as a moving bagpipe solo.
Earlier in the day Menzies hosted a penny whistle workshop and concert for about 30 participants.
The Celtic trio was Angus Morrison on the small pipes, Lorraine Baker on piano and Ken Emery on fiddle, joined on some tunes by Hal Giles on stand up bass and Pat Myre on acoustic guitar. Ken, Hal and Pat from the Old Time Fiddlers also had people up dancing at various intervals.
Carly Magnuson and Laura Neufeld performed on violin.
Several traditional dances including a sailor dance and sword dance performed by a variety of dancers including Kirsten Lees, Lydia Davidson, Alexandra Wolfe and Quinn Andrews.
Rob Menzies accompanied some of the dances on bagpipes.
Doug White and his grandson Brock Everett led the crowd in a sing-along. The 2013 Stampede Queen contestants welcomed guests and helped out.
