The annual fun day, organised by North Glenrothes Community Council, takes place this weekend.

Now in its 11th year, the event in the town’s Gilvenbank Park offers a great day out for the whole family with something to keep all ages interested.

This year there will once again be a range of acts providing entertainment on the day and numerous stalls for visitors to browse.

Among those lined up for the event, which runs from noon to 4pm on Saturday, will be the World of Parties fun fair; magician Alexander the Great; and Raith Rovers FC mascot Roary Rover.

Scottish Segways, Gem Equestrian and Fife Vintage Agricultural Machinery Club will also be in attendance.

There’s the chance to have your face painted, as well as a display by Zumba dancers.

And for 2016 there’s a whole host of top prizes lined up for the raffle, including £100 cash; dinner, bed and breakfast at Gilvenbank Hotel; a family pass for the Scottish Deer Centre and a try dive with Divebunker Ltd.

Organisers are hoping for fair weather and would encourage the whole community to come along and support the event.
