Organisers of this year’s Grangemouth Children’s Day hope three Summers will be present in Zetland Park on Saturday.
It has to be a good omen Moray Primary School’s Summer McCall and Summer Noe are ladies in waiting at the popular annual event. Hopefully the weather stays warm and dry to make it a ‘Summer’ hat-trick.
Things get underw ay at 1.30 p.m. when floats carry Beancross, Moray, Bowhouse and Sacred Heart primary school pupils along Kersiebank Avenue and Abbots Road towards the crowning and activities in Zetland Park.
The big parade features music from Denny and Dunipace, Tulliallan, Camelon, Alloa and Bowmar Pipe Bands and Bo’ness and Carriden brass band.
Last year was Sacred Heart pupil Nicole Loney’s day, but 2015 belongs to Moray’s Kirsty Gallagher, who will be crowned just after 2.45 p.m. in Zetland Park by long-standing Grangemouth registrar Doreen Clacher.
The fun has already started with sports events at Grangemouth Stadium on Monday and football at LK Galaxy on Wednesday, with an all new Player of the Tournament Trophy this year.
The traditional Tour of the Arches kicks of tomorrow (Friday) evening.
The 2015 retinue is Kirsty Gallagher (Queen); Sophie Butler and Mia Pringle (Maids of Honour); Olivia Beattie, Emma Louis Clark, Ellis Keay, Olivia Keay, Madison Macdonald, Summer McCall, Ciara Mulhall, Summer Noe (Ladies in Waiting); Lewis Martin (Herald); Fred Wilson (Courtier); Rhys Ferrier and Ashton Healy (Page Boys) Teigan Daisley (Flower Girl).
