At this time of the year, my home village comes alive with its annual festival. I think this year is the 20th celebration - it was never so grand or prolonged when I was a wee girl.

Festival Parade

The festival officially opened today with the parade from easter to wester village before crowning the royalty at the castle. The parade resumed, leading the village down Shore Road to kick off Beach Day.
Wee Guy, Grandpa and I took part in the sandcastle building competition, managing to beat the rapidly incoming tide to make it intact through to judging.

After a brief lunch at the house, we were back at the beach for the raft race. Happy to report that all rafts and crew made it back to the beach, though some paddlers did have to swim the final leg to catch up with their vessels!

The weather was warm and sunny all day - summer has arrived in Aberdour.
