These epictures from Kirkcaldy Pageant will spark memories across several generations of folk from the Lang Toun.

A huge post-war event, it was revived in the 1990s and ran until the early 2000s.

These pictures date from 2000 and focus on the boat race on the pond at Beveridge Park – an event which drew great support from community groups and businesses who made their own rafts and then raced on the pond (or, in some cases, sank without trace)!
