The fun begins tonight (Friday) night with a football competition and the amusements on McRobert Park for everyone to enjoy. There will also be a kids fancy dress costume competition which will include a prize for the best dressed pet.

On Saturday morning the show will be opened by Norman Calder, famous for being the local competitor for "The Great British Bake-off".

With the marquee being open at 12 noon and trophies being handed out at 3:30pm it is to be an exciting day. The entertainment will include a threshing mill demonstration, lace making and butter making demonstrations, to keep up with the heritage theme that has been carried out at Foggie Flower Show since the day it started.

There is something for all ages to look forward to, as young children have the opportunity to try balloon modelling, face painting and children’s races with prizes to be won. For the even younger a baby competition takes place at 2:30pm.

For the dancers, the Highland Dancing competition will begin at 12 noon. Foggie will also have its first ever truck show, a display of around 40 vintage vehicles.

From 9pm to 10pm there is games galore for those to come along to raise money for a local charity. At night, there is licensed marquee disco for those over 18 to enjoy.
