Killin Hog­manay cel­e­bra­tions

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

NEW YEAR cel­e­bra­tions in Killin started with the chil­dren of the vil­lage parad­ing through Main Street car­ry­ing lanterns they had made in a work­shop on De­cem­ber 17.

The pa­rade ended at The Killin Ho­tel where the chil­dren showed off their cre­ations to the ho­tel guests be­fore hav­ing them judged by one of the visi­tors to the ho­tel.

First prize went to Naomi Grant, sec­ond prize to Iona Laf­ferty and third prize to Liam Mullen.

The whole event was or­gan­ised by Mrs Alma Walker with help from par­ents.

Later lo­cal peo­ple and visi­tors gath­ered at the Falls of Dochart to wel­come in 2017 and were treated to a mag­nif­i­cent dis­play of fire­works that lasted for 20 min­utes and looked spec­tac­u­lar over the wa­ter with the Falls of Dochart in spate af­ter the rain ear­lier in the day. Thanks go to Char­lie Grant and his band of helpers who or­gan­ised such a great event.
