Crowds of people turned out as the sun shone brightly on Broughty Ferry’s Gala Day on Sunday.

The yearly event saw an excellent turnout from the local community and even welcomed people from further afield, such as guests from America and Australia to name but a few of the overseas visitors.

“Every year it gets bigger and better,” said Gerry Stewart, chair of the Gala Committee.“I was absolutely delighted with the number of people who attended and everything that went on. It was a very successful day.

“Of course the turnout was even better because of the weather.”

250 enthusiastic children with buckets and spades in hand turned up for the coveted sand building competition as well as face painting stalls transforming little faces into wild creatures.

Appearances from the Royal British Legion Scotland Motor Bike Riders, Royal Regiment of Scotland Armed Forces and Fire Brigade caused the obligatory stir, setting the Gala up for a very enjoyable week.

Events will last until Sunday with not to be missed activities such as an Antiques Roadshow, Broughty Ferry Library Open Day and the Secret Garden Trail.
