Bo'ness Victorian Fair

The relaunch of the Bo'ness Victorian Fair held on Sunday 25 May 2008 proved to be the success expected.

Queen Victoria enjoying the sunshineBo’ness has begun a new era of celebration to add to a growing number of very positive events in the annual life of this small but vibrant town only 15 miles from Edinburgh.

The day started early and a little overcast but by the opening time of 12 noon the sun broke through and continued to shine on the crowd, of approximately 5000/6000, all afternoon and indeed late into the evening.

Queen Victoria accompanied by her close friend, John Brown, and our own Fair Queen, Alexandra Findlayson, opened the event and stayed throughout the afternoon to enjoy the carnival atmosphere.

Children's carnival ridesOver 40 portable trading outlets joined the many local Bo’ness Town Centre traders to create a unique mixture of high quality specialist items to buy as well as many more day to day items.

Mary Jane Armstrong of Town Centre Management, co-organisers of the event, commented that “this has proved to be an
excellent event and the community involvement will hold future Street Fair’s in good stead.”

The last street fair took place in of Bo’ness in 1997 and it has taken a good partnership between Bo'ness Community Council, Bo'ness means Business and Town Centre Management to bring the event back to Bo’ness so fast.
