The sun continued to shine Sunday afternoon, July 9, for the Richard Yun Family Day, held in Victoria Park, during the Kincardine Scottish Festival.

A great crowd enjoyed the piping and drumming displays, Institute of Scottish Culture demonstrations, the Clydesdale horse and foal of Top Meadow Farms, and the wee Highland Coo of Comolea Farms.

The Bairns' activities, conducted by Andrea Zimmer and her volunteers in the gazebo, were a tremendous success. About 150 children made crafts and small drums, with the older youth making large drums out of ice cream pails. Zimmer said she used 80 ice cream buckets over Saturday and Sunday of the festival. Youngsters and adults were also invited to participate in the scavenger hunt which was new this year.

Hundreds of people filled the park for the Celtic Music concert, featuring The Kincardine Fiddle Orchestra, The Thogs, The Pleats, Taxi Chain, Albannach, The Screaming Orphans, Bessie and the Zinc Buckets, and The Mudmen.

The festival ended with the closing ceremonies.
