CARDENDEN Village Fair is back this year with exotic animals, face painting and a Ferris wheel to Wallsgreen Park.

The event this Sunday, August 27, starts from 11.30am (fairground rides from 11am) and runs until 4pm and the afternoon has something for everyone.

This year's theme is 'Disabilities and Support Services' and the day promises to be one to remember.

"We have an exciting fun day planned for you," the committee secretary told the Times.

"We have lots of wonderful craft stalls, local causes and groups, charity fundraising stalls and plenty of attractions around the field.

"Our new guests, ReptiZoo Encounters, will be joining us!

"If you wish to adventure with an exotic experience, meeting and greeting reptiles and snakes, this is the place to be.

"But of course, there will be a quiet area for petting more familiar bunnies, hamsters and guinea pigs!"

ReptiZoo Encounters are a not-for-profit organisation that rescue animals in need, providing specialist care.

They offer education, conservation and animal therapy for children and adults with complex challenges and needs.

Oliver’s Army Assistance Dogs are also part of the day, and they will be putting on a small display in the entertainment ring.

Oliver's Army Assistance Dogs support children and adults living with a range of conditions from autism, ADHD and learning difficulties to physical disability, visual impairment and PTSD by providing assistance and therapy dogs.

John Gilfillan will be running his very popular children’s races and the fair will have an entertainment area featuring Bowhill Karate Club, Kirkcaldy & District Pipe Band, Danielle Law School of Dance & Music – Highland Dancers; and new this year is Romi Clarke Dance.

Near the Bowling Club car park you will be able to find Bobby Tomlinson’s Tuk Tuk Rides – Bobby and his partner, Sally and family were recently featured in the Times for their incredible journey taking two Tuk Tuks around the full coastline and borders of mainland Scotland raising funds for Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust.

Deansie’s Designs will be there brightening up the event with face-painting, glitter tattoos and glitter festival hair.

And if you ever fancied a painless tattoo, then John’s Airbrush Tattoos will be there for you.

"We have ponies galore with Melville Equestrian Pony Rides, and wonderful Birds of Prey with Alba Falconry," the secretary continued.

"This year we are excited to announce King of the Castle will be bringing a Ferris Wheel!

"A big thank you to Michelle Gray and the wonderful local Scouts group.

"Without them we’d be lost! We really look forward to seeing you all on Sunday."
