With a flora and fauna theme the parade made its way through the village to Aberdour Castle for the crowning of the king and queen by stationmaster Trevor Francis.

The fun continued with the a village sports and gala day.

Throughout the festival, which is now in its 30th year, there’s been a varied programme of events, with something for everyone.

Highlights from the 10 day festival, which finishes this Sunday have so far included the Donkey Brae run, the village market, comedienne Jo Caulfield and an acoustic set from Donnie
Munro.

But with four days left of the festival, there’s still plenty for the whole family to see and do.

Among those events taking place over the next few days are the Great Aberdour Festival Bake Off this afternoon (Thursday), with special guest judges John Whaite and Mrs Lonie; Bruce Springsteen tribute band The Rising tonight and the picnic at the castle tomorrow (Friday).

On Saturday why not enjoy the beach day and sand castle competition at the Sands, as well as the Haughcross - a cyclocross event that’s great for competitors and spectators.

The festival draws to a close on Sunday.
