The Marykirk Raft Race Committee’s annual Raft Race Day is fast approaching and the turnout of teams this year is looking to be really good so will definitely be worth a watch on the day!
However there still have some packs left so if you wish to get your team entered in then please fill out your application pack ASAP. These are available from the Marykirk Hotel or Mearns Hardware in Laurencekirk. The race starts at 12pm down by the river on Sunday May 17, however if taking part or watching the ‘water fun’ isn’t for you then pop down to the park between 2-8pm to take part in all of the fun-filled activities that will be available on the day. There will be a beer tent in the park managed by MSG Events and of course the stage will be packed full with local bands. Any bands or singers who would like to be part of this on the day should show their interest ASAP through our Facebook page, firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be a Climbing Wall, Rodeo Bull, Bouncy Castles, the ultimate ‘Piano Smash’ that proved very popular last year and of course lots of other activities, children’s races, stalls and food vans. All monies raised go to Carronhill School, CHAS, Mearns Allsorts and other local groups and charities.
