Taking Part

We are proud to be the biggest Parade in West lothian and we could not do that without your support and commitment to taking part.

To help with the organisation of the Procession we ask that any groups planning on taking part contact our secretary, Jim Walker, on 01506 652483 so we can effectively place you in the parade.

If you are creating a float or having a vehicle in the Procession, please note that you must be on Marjoribanks Street before 10am if you wish to enter the decorated vehicle competition.   To avoid any problems we ask that you enter the street via Kirk Road (using the Kaim Park Roundabout) so your vehicle is facing the correct direction.

Fancy Dress characters and Bicycles should meet at Marjoribanks Street for 10.30am if they wish to enter the competition.

full details of our competitions can be found here.

All walking groups and vehicles not taking part in the competitions should meet at the Old Academy on Marjoribanks Street for 12pm, again vehicles should enter via Kirk Road.  Please could one person from each group make yourself known to our marshalls.

Primary and Nursery Schools – all children and adults taking part in the Parade with their School should meet at the Old Academy on Marjoribanks Street by 12pm.  There will be designated areas for each of the 6 Primary Schools.
