PETERHEAD Scottish Week has been hailed another success, with record crowds and events packed to the rafters as Blue Toon folk came out to support the week-long gala.
In excess of 10,000 gathered at the Lido and various vantage spots around the port to see the return of the Red Arrows on Saturday night, as they provided a breath-taking display in the skies about the bay.
And thousands gathered in the town centre during the afternoon to witness on the largest parades in recent times as a colourful procession of floats, vintage vehicles, children in fancy dress and musicians wound its way through the streets.
Committee member Graham Barron told the Buchanie on Monday that the week had been ‘absolutely brilliant’, with the only disappointment being the heavy rain showers which affected Thursday night’s fireworks display.
“There was a record entry for the baby show and sandcastle competition and the parade was the biggest in years. Folk have certainly come out to support Scottish Week and it’s been fantastic,” he said.
