Gala Weekend 2008
Friday 13th - Sunday 15th June, 2008
What happened at Wemyss Bay Gala Weekend 2008?
Well another year over and what a great success yet again! The weather of course was a great attribution to the weekend and the fantastic community spirit. The committee have received nothing but positive feedback and have commented on how much everyone is looking forward to next year’s event!!!!!!
Friday night was well attended and enjoyed by adults and children alike with Radio Clyde 2's Bill Smith providing the music and entertainment.
Saturday began with the arrival of the Gala Royal Family and the grand opening by Radio Clyde's Dr Proctor. All stalls and attractions were busy as usual and thanks to Funworld, the Sumo Suits went down a storm!!!!!! (Could the person who borrowed one of the helmets please return it Spar Shop at Wemyss Bay.)
Feedback is that perhaps a bigger Marquee would be needed to accommodate the volume of enthusiastic audience cheering on the multi talented participants from the Brownies dancing team, Graffiti Dance Troupe, Jo Jingles and her tiny musicians to the grand talent competition.

Wemyss Bay Association would like to say a massive THANK YOU
A special thanks to the sponsorship we received. This included donations of many kinds including money, food, free hire and prize donations. For sure the gala would not be possible without the endeavours of this core team.
