Not quite Coachella or the Commonwealth Games but perhaps a little bit of both! The Fresh Air Festival returns this Saturday to Dunfermline’s Public Park. The park’s Victorian bandstand will ring out once more to the sounds of jazz, brass, pipes and some of the area’s best young singer songwriters. There’ll be pony rides, sports taster sessions, including parkour and karate, a family barbecue and birds of prey. New for this year are nature walks and treasure hunt in the recently redeveloped School Wood, classic cars from Knockhill Motor Racing Circuit, model airplanes, mini-golf, chainsaw sculptures,  displays of Park projects, Dunfermline walks and Police Scotland demonstrations.

The Fresh Air Festival is brought to you by the Public Park Improvement Group with the aim of celebrating outdoor fun and raising funds and support for the Park.  The fun starts at 12pm and goes on until 4pm. Bring your own tartan rug and, if it’s wet, your wellies – the Festival is all about the outdoors and should be just as much fun rain or shine.

Fresh Air Festival 2014 is on at the Public Park Dunfermline from 12pm til 4pm on Saturday 31 May. Entry is free. The event is within five minutes walk from the town centre and is adjacent to the train station.
