Everyone is welcome to enjoy the fun which starts when a parade of floats and veteran cars leaves Drymen Primary School at midday and is led by a pipe band through the village to arrive at the football field half an hour later.

The afternoon’s events include 7-a-side football, beat the goalie, “It’s a Village Knockout”, tug-o-war and a look alike competition with entertainment throughout the afternoon from a magician, Loch Lomond Ukulele Orchestra and a pipe band.
