It’s a Gala time for Loanhead

Midlothian’s oldest and largest local festival gets underway in Loanhead today (Friday).

The start of Loanhead Gala Week (June 14-22) will be marked with the Carnival Parade.

Judging of the individual fancy dress entrants and fancy dress groups on foot will take place on Fountain Green at 6.30pm.

Floats and other vehicles will assemble in the driveway leading to the old Loanhead Cemetery, entering from Burghlee Terrace.
