Dunfermline Children’s Gala Day has been an extraordinarily enduring occasion with this Saturday’s event being the 113th to take place in the town. Once simply a parade of local schoolchildren down the High Street to the Glen for a picnic and a play, it is now a day long extravaganza which takes the Gala Committee a full year to organise. These days over 3,000 primary school children, each supplied with a balloon, hat, streamers, treats, drink and lunch, take part, and over 15,000 people watch the parade and the entertainment which includes music, dancing, acrobatic displays, interactive workshops, charity stalls, food vans and a fun fair. This year’s Gala has a Musicals theme so expect to see plenty Elsas, Cats and and Danny Zuko’s strolling down the High Street this weekend. The parade starts at 11am and the afternoon fun at 1pm.
