The Marymass Festival Committee are calling on people of all ages to join the Festival of Light Parade.

The parade departs Irvine Cross at 9pm on Saturday, August 17, heading along the High Street and Kilwinning Road to Irvine Moor for the annual fireworks.

Irvine Times:

The parade will this year feature a pipe band as well as a number of floats including new ‘push-pull’ carts built by Irvine Carters’ Society and donated to community groups across Irvine.

Laura Kerr of the Festival Committee said: “So many people are still unaware they can become part of our Festival of Light Parade.

Irvine Times:

“We love the community aspect of Marymass and would love to see as many people as possible come along, illuminate themselves any way they can and join in.

“It’s a free event and is great fun for the kids. What’s not to love!”
