Wild and windy weather greeted Kinghorn’s Gala parade on Saturday, but it failed to put people off taking part in the colourful spectacle.

The parade was well attended by the various local organisations including the Guides, Scouts, school and nursery, baby and toddlers and oKinghorn RNLI Lifeboat.

Kinghorn Baby and Toddlers won first prize in the fancy dress parade, with the Rainbows second and Brownies third.

Andy Menzies, chairman, said: “It was great to have the mini RIB from the RNLI in the parade, particularly as our ‘Golden Taste of the Seaside’ theme was to tie in with the 50th anniversary of having a lifeboat station at Kinghorn.”

Burntisland Pipe Band led the parade with the New Generation Twirlers and Joy Aitken’s Highland Dancers.

There was lots of fun and laughter at the sports afternoon which was moved to Kinghorn Community Centre because of the high winds. At the gala party night entertainment came from Revolutions Disco, Joy Aitken’s Highland Dancers, and ‘Kinghorn’s Got Talent’ winners Calum Paterson with his fantastic break dancing medley and Erin Madden and Robyn Cunningham dancing to Uptown Funk.
