King’s Park Church re­cently wel­comed lo­cals to their fourth com­mu­nity fes­ti­val.

The fes­ti­val is a legacy event of the Queen’s ba­ton re­lay cel­e­bra­tion held at the church as part of the Com­mon­wealth Games cel­e­bra­tions.

And the day was blessed with some gor­geous weather that helped en­sure it went with­out a hitch.

Rev San­dra Boyd of King’s Park Church, said: “It was an­other fan­tas­tic day to re­mem­ber.

“The bunt­ing was up, the co­conut shy was out, the face painters from Glas­gow Life were geared up, the jelly and ice-cream set, the hot dogs and ham­burg­ers were cooked, the owls be­haved them­selves and the bouncy cas­tle was blown up, flash­ing its lights and play­ing mu­sic.

“The stocks es­pe­cially helped the chil­dren and a few adults to keep cool!

“We en­joyed a fan­tas­tic show from Gary Dunn the Ma­gi­cian and Owl Magic con­stantly had chil­dren and adults stop­ping to ad­mire and hold the won­der­ful birds.

“A huge thank-you to all the lo­cal in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses who sup­ported our event, namely; Glas­gow Life, Cost­cut­ters, Baba G, Day-To­day, King’s Park Dairy, Ab­dul at King’s, Adams the Butcher, King’s Park Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and King’s Park Church.

“Hun­dreds of lo­cal peo­ple and some from fur­ther afield came out to en­joy the fes­tiv­i­ties and share to­gether as a com­mu­nity.

“We’ve Spe­cial thanks to all the vol­un­teers from King’s Park Church who made the day one to re­mem­ber.

“We’re look­ing forward to next year al­ready! “
