COMRIE’S 40th Fortnight finished in style on Saturday with the traditional float parade through the village led by Comrie Pipe Band.
Hundreds of spectators lined the streets to cheer on the colourful, imaginative and humourous creations as they made their way to the Laggan Park where judges Pat, Willie and Anne Nicol had a tough time deciding the winners.
Judging over and it was on with the games. Children’s races, tossing the sheaf and tug ‘o war competitions followed, and later those with any energy left rounded off a great two weeks dancing the night away at the marquee dance.
Summing up the ruby anniversary programme, Chairman Allan Stewart said: “I am really pleased with the way the Fortnight has gone. From the opening ceremony right through to the end, everything has been well attended.
“A big thank you must go to the committee for all their hard work, but it is not only them - there are many others who help us at the events so many thanks to them too. It’s also nice to see the youngsters such as Ewen Stewart and Katie Stewart getting involved and doing a lot to help out.
“Finally, I’ve got to mention everyone who comes along to attend the events. Thanks for supporting us. The whole Fortnight was fantastic.”
