GALA day fever raced into Cowdenbeath this weekend to make the annual event a roaring success.

A sea of colour saw the traditional parade make its way through the town before an array of entertainment was put on at Beath High's playing fields.

Among the activities for young and old to enjoy was a mini zoo, wrestling, a fun fair and pony rides.

Over 40 local groups, organisations and businesses were also in attendance.

Steven Haddow, chairperson of Cowdenbeath Civic Week who organised the day, said: "It was excellent. The weather held up and it was absolutely brilliant.

"We had loads of stuff going on. We had the food zone, in excess of 43 stall holders, some of them were fundraising for local groups. There were information ones as well.

"We had the stock cars from Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath came along as well. Both of them took part in the parade and we then set up an area at the side of the park for them and the kids could get their pictures taken in them."

Mr Haddow paid tribute who turned out to support the event.

"We needed 25 volunteers just for shutting some of the side streets and we managed to get that. Without them, we would not be able to do the parade so a big thank you to them.

"We also had the Police Youth volunteers who helped with the marshalling and up on the park and they were a great help too."
