Decorated Wheelbarrow Procession

Decorated Wheel barrow Procession 2012Photo by Rob McDougall

The festival welcomes locals and visitors to line the streets and enjoy this unique procession! It's a first for Scotland…and probably the world!! The artistry, imagination and skill displayed by entrants at the inaugural event in 2011 and the follow up in 2012 are still vivid memories for those who were there! Described as " brilliant fun and an amazing spectacle"! (Perthshire Advertiser) the decorated wheelbarrows, created by local businesses, community groups, families and whacky individuals process from Tay Terrace to The Cross in Dunkeld where they are judged for originality, appearance and handling.

The fun procession is led by The Edradour Pitlochry & Blair Atholl Pipe Band and as the wheelbarrows assemble for the Procession, our local community choir Just Singin' will  keep folk happy down in The Cross.
