Organisers of this weekend’s Aberdour Festival have taken the decision to cancel some of the activities including the parade due to the wet weather forecast.

They put a post on the Aberdour Festival 2019 Facebook page today (Friday) to let locals know about the changes for tomorrow’s event.

The sports day has been re-scheduled for August 4 as heavy rain is expected tomorrow. Pic: George McLuskie.

As well as the cancellation of the parade, the sports day planned has now been re-scheduled to Sunday, August 4 and the festival crowning will now take place indoors at Aberdour Primary School instead of at Shore Road Park.

And instead of the sports day, a new event has been added - a Royal party in the school hall which will take place after the crowning.
