The dresses are pressed and ironed, the arches are up – now all Grangemouth Children’s Day needs is the sun to shine.
Starting at 1.30 p.m. on Saturday, the procession will leave from all four schools in the area and progress along Kingseat Avenue shortly after that, with Bowhouse Primary in the lead, followed by Sacred Heart, Moray and Beancross.
The parade will include music from Forth Accordion Band, Camelon Pipe Band, Bo’ness and Carriden Brass Band, Denny and Dunipace Pipe Band, Tulliallan Pipes and Drums and Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band.
Queen elect and Beancross Primary School pupil Georgia Forsyth will be crowned by deputy leader of Falkirk Council Allyson Black at 2.45 p.m. in Zetland Park.
The traditional tour of the arches takes place tomorrow (Friday) night with scores of family, friends, Grangemouth residents and visitors taking a pleasant evening stroll through the town.
Queen elect Georgia’s arch is available to view in Wood Street, while more can be seen in Bowhouse Road, Burnbank Avenue, Devon Street, Grange Place, Gunn Road, Harris Place, Montgomery Street, Newlands Road, Portal Road, Scott Street, Tweed Street and Wavell Street.
