Adventurous families from all over Renfrewshire will be going wild in the aisles this Sunday at a gala day with a difference.

This year’s Renfrew Gala Day takes place at Robertson Park from 1pm until 4pm.

The theme of this year’s event is jungle – and to get involved in the day, families are being encouraged to pay tribute to their favourite wild creatures by donning crazy, colourful costumes.

A 300-strong parade will mark the start of the event – starting at Canal Street at 1pm, before trekking past Renfrew Town Hall, and then turning right along Inchinnan Road, heading for the park.

Inside Robertson Park, family activities include go karting, free face painting and a bouncy castle, and there will also be a funfair and rugby and football taster sessions.

The McMaster Centre tearoom will be serving food and drink, along with a selection of food vendors, and there will be plenty of bargains on offer at the stalls.

Local musicians and dancers will provide a feast for the eyes and ears, and there will also be a visit from a troupe of vintage fire engines.

To help celebrate this year’s jungle theme, kids are also encouraged to take part in a wild town trail competition around Renfrew’s shop and businesses. Find all 11 hidden animals and one lucky explorer will win a prize at Gala Day on Sunday.

As a precursor to the gala day, youngsters took part in a wild town trail competition around Renfrew’s shops and businesses to find hidden animal stickers. One intrepid explorer will be announced as the winner on Sunday.

And the summer fun won’t stop after Renfrew; Barshaw Gala Day steps up next for another day jam-packed with family fun on Saturday 22 June.
