The 75th Penicuik Hunter and Lass celebrations reach their climax on Saturday when time-honoured tradition and a carnival atmosphere collide.

The 2011 Hunter Andrew Murray and Lass Adele Munro will be officially installed during the ceremony held outside Penicuik Town Hall tomorrow (Thursday).

The evening starts at 6.45pm, when members of the Dance Pointe Studio School of Dance, McAuley/Haughey School of Irish Dance, Penicuik and District Pipe Band and Penicuik Silver Band will entertain the gathering crowd.

The installation ceremony starts at 7.30pm with this year’s events overseen by MC Gavin Stephen, the 2004 Hunter.

The Hunter and Lass will continue their programme of community visits on Friday when they will meet residents at Pentland House and members of the Broomhill Day Centre.
