“The gala always brings everyone of Kincardine together for a fun day so we are hoping this year's turnout will be great. 

“We don’t do a theme for the gala though we do have floats in the parade with their own themes. And each of the children in the royal party choose themes for their decorated houses.”

The gala will begin with the parade leaving Station Road at approximately 12.15pm. This will be followed by the crowning ceremony in the park from 1pm with various events, stalls, attractions, races and fun and games.
