Crowds embrace the summer season at Barshaw Gala Day

Thousands turned out to celebrate summer at Barshaw Park on Saturday for Barshaw Gala Day.

Local musicians and dancers wowed crowds throughout the day and there was plenty to keep the kids active with football, rugby, and circus skills activities taking place in the park.

There were a variety of stalls and food vendors on site, and the funfair and inflatables ensured there was something on offer for all ages.

The ever-popular ride-on-train was also running throughout the day and the model boating competition on the refurbished pond provided a spectacular scene.

The next event in Renfrewshire is Sma’ Shot Day, taking place on Saturday 6 July. Find out more at
