Glorious Day For 72nd Fife-Keith Picnic

Saturday 17th June saw the 72nd Fife Keith Picnic which has been going every year since 1945.  Denise Maver, Chairperson for The Fife-Keith Picnic Committee said, “It was extremely well attended with just under 350 adults, OAP’s and children in total attending.

Strathisla Pipe Band started off proceedings at 12.45pm at Fife Keith Square when they piped residents up Fife Street, along Mar Place, up round Fraser Place and into Fife Park for a 1.00pm start.
A glorious afternoon was spent eating ice-cream, fancy pieces and bridies, and the pensioners were even treated to a wee dram in the marquee tent!
There was loads of entertainment for the kids in the form of bouncy castles, Tam o Shunter train around the park, face painting, balloon modelling and races.
Tradition states that the Picnic always rounds off with a Dad’s Tug of War followed by a huge Adults v Kids football match and I am delighted to say that this year the kids triumphed 4-3!
The picnic usually ends around 5pm but, because of the great atmosphere on Saturday combined with the gorgeous weather, there were still crowds of folk in the park well after 6.30pm.
After all the clearing up is done it’s fair to say that the committee members relax and enjoy the disco in the Golf Club afterwards!”
