Summer Fair

11am - 5pm, Saturday the 28th August

In the face of the sensory bombardment that is the Edinburgh Festival, some of you may be experiencing cultural fatigue.  We would urge you however, not to overlook the Friends of Montgomery Street Park Summer Fair.

All the usual bunting based fun and games, market stalls, refreshments, competitions and not least, information and fundraising relating to the latest park improvements.

You are invited to come in Fancy Dress - the theme is 'Parklife (we are anticipating the uptake here will stem largely from the youngsters amongst us - but more elderly folk shouldn't be shy - a Damon Albarn costume could surely be assembled economically and at short notice).  Parade and prizes scheduled for 1pm

There will also be a Children's Cupcake Decorating Competition which will be judged at 3pm (cupcakes, icing etc provided).

In addition this year, we have a Poetry Tent and an acoustic Music Stage* if you are inclined to bring along your guitar / banjo / piano

Hope to see you all on the day and please spread the word.


*disclaimer - may not be an actual stage

Summer Fair - 28th August

Montgomery Street Park, 28th August 2010

Once again this year the Friends of Montgomery Street Park are organising a Summer Fair.  We hope to build on last year’s hugely successful event.  If you are interested in being involved or assisting in any way, be that through hiring a stall within our mini market; making a donation to the tombola stall; assisting with setting up and taking down; contributing to our open mic. poetry stage; assisting our event coordinators with kid’s events, entertainment and competitions; then get in touch via the Contact Us page.

In any case, note the date in your diary and ensure you don’t miss out on your own local festival of fun staged within the wonderful realm of your own community park!
