28th June - Family Day

Penielheugh Wellington Monument between midday and 6pm,  a day of entertainment for all the family.
Plans are still being finalised, but already they include massed local pipe bands, a military band, a mass ride out of riders young and old, including, it is hoped, the Callant, military re-enactments, special visitors and participants, trade stalls and food outlets.
This programme will culminate with a beating of the retreat, a display of daylight fireworks and the lighting of the bonfire.
It will be the biggest event ever held on Penielheugh since the monument was built and all will be welcome.
