Kimberley’s Pipe Band will celebrate a milestone 90 years in the community this summer.
The musical act will host an anniversary event in July. They are expecting over 400 people to come to the city from around the world.
Organizer Jim Webster says the festivities are in recognition of the city’s piping heritage.
Webster adds they want to secure six thousand dollars in funding for the event from Canada 150 grants.
He says the event will go on with or without government funding.
The Pipe Band typically holds celebrations every 10 years and held their first anniversary tattoo for their 50th year in 1967.
