The countdown is on for the Friends of Gartside Gardens annual funday.

This free fun-filled extravaganza returns to the park this year (on Kincardine Road) from 12:00-4:00pm on Saturday, August 13.

There will be bouncy castles, face painting, balloon art and a rodeo bull among the highlights, and the ever popular falconry display will be making a return, with the chance to get up close to beautiful birds of prey.

And once again this year, everyone can experience ‘live’ chainsaw art from Karl, demonstrating his unique carving skills.

As well as fun activities for all the family, there will also be stalls with food, plant making, football and live music.

Craig Eastham, Chair of the Friends of Gartside Gardens, said: “Our annual party event is a great way of bringing members of the local community together.

“Our event was extremely popular last year and with so many great activities taking place, it promises to be another fun-filled day for the whole family.

“So why not come along and join in the fun – we are hoping to make this a permanent fixture in people’s diaries for many more years to come”.
