The parade was the culmination of Kinghorn Gala Week which kicked off on June 1 with the crowning ceremony in the church.

A variety of events then took place throughout the week including ‘Robinson Crusoe’ sessions, pond guddles, bowling, a talent show, a quiz night, and a treasure hunt at the Ecology Centre.

On Saturday those taking part in the parade, including Batman, Spiderman, Sponge Bob Square Pants and Smurfs, congregated in Park Place before setting off in the parade around the town.

A family sports event then took place at the school playing fields with party night in the Community Centre at night.
