KINGHORN organisations and residents put on quite a show as the weather stayed fine for their annual Gala parade on Saturday.
The procession, on the theme of ‘Movies and Films’ drew a variety of colourful entries from local groups including: Kinghorn Parents and Toddlers group with their ‘Harry Potter’ costumes; Kinghorn School Nursery with Peter Pan, which took third prize; Kinghorn Primary with Superheroes; Rainbows, 101 Dalmatians; Brownies who were dressed as Oompa-loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, who won the first prize for the second year running; Guides with St Trinians; Beavers, Toy Story, which took second prize; Cubs and Scouts, James Bond; and The Ecology Centre with A Bug’s Life.
The entries were judged by Community Councillors Chris and Liz Mitchell.
The Coastguard and some of the local lifeboat volunteer crew also joined the parade, with music provided by Burntisland and District Pipe Band and Dunfermline Town Brass Band.
The parade stopped briefly at The Carousel to present the trophy for ‘Best Dressed Shop,’ and the Royal Party then walked part of the route from there along Rossland Place and the High Street before returning to their car.
The parade ended at Kinghorn Primary school where a sports afternoon was held with the King and Queen presenting gold, silver and bronze medals. A birds of prey display also proved a big attraction throughout the afternoon.
A Gala Party Night rounded off the festivities on Saturday evening in the Community Centre, with performances from the Joy Aitken Highland Dancers and the winners from the ‘Kinghorn’s Got Talent’ show.
