The weather is looking good and Peterhead is gearing up for its 52nd Scottish Week which gets underway on Saturday.

Crowds are expected to gather at the town’s Drummer’s Corner for the now traditional crowing of this year’s Buchan Queen, Kelsey Cook, and her princesses Danielle McIntosh and Kirsten Fraser.

This year’s ceremony will be conducted by Scottish comedian and television and radio personality Fred MacAuley, who is making a welcome return to the Blue Toon.

The ceremony will be held at 2pm, but prior to that there will be a host of entertainment in Drummer’s Corner, with music and dancing and performance from Fraserburgh Pipe Band set to get the week off to a super start.

As well as the usual Scottish Week favourites, organisers have added a few new events to this year’s programme.

Aspecial Scottish Week Games will take place on the opening Saturday for children aged from five to 11 years of age. There will also be a family cycle run starting from the town’s Eden Park on Sunday which will be followed by a picnic in the park upon their return. Let’s hope the sun continues to shine.

Top billing for this year’s gala week is a performance from The Blades aerobatic display team.

These low-wing performance aircraft are designed for the most adventurous aerobatic manoeuvres and created with advanced aerobatic flying in mind. They will be taking to the skies of Buchan on Friday evening.

Added to a host of daily events across the coming week, Scottish Week 2013 is gearing up to be a fantastic week of fun for all the family.
