Blackwood and Kirkmuirhill Gala 11th June 2016

Cake

The weather was overcast and the rain managed to stay away for the procession. This day was also the Queen's 90th Birthday, so two groups had walking floats with this theme with huge birthday cakes pulled around. Even the Royal Family attended! Some great work put into the floats by all concerned. These photos were taken in Southfield Road and Thornton Drive.
