The week begins with the Highland Games and ends with the BID’s classic car show with a whole load of other events in between, some traditional and some new.

Already confirmed are a series of contests, including:

A cat show for children, bring your own cat!

A dog show.

Arnold Clark sponsored car treasure hunt.

Duck race on River Allander, organised by Rotary of Allander, is set to be another big draw in the festival calendar.

Schools’ debating from Douglas Academy looks set to be a hotly contested competition, while the best kept garden (organised and judged by Milngavie in Bloom) will bring a riot of colour and flowers of all varieties throughout the town.

The Classic Car Show is organised by Business Improvement District (BID) as a one of their annual projects and they will also have small area with market stalls and food stalls.

Ania Surma, one of the BID organisers, said: “We are also planning kids street entertainment.

“Last year the event was a huge success and we had over 30 beautiful classic and vintage cars on display.

“Hundreds of people visited our town centre to see it and we believe that this year will be even bigger and better!

“We will also have few surprises in terms of cars and exhibitors!

“Each car has unique history which will be displayed at the event.

“We are really looking forwards to the show and to welcoming people from near and far to Milngavie so they can see everything that it has to offer.”

There are still a few spaces left - if you would like to take part in the event please email ania.surma@milngaviebid.com or via mobile phone 07523958440.

They will also have ‘the best on show’ prize for one of the car owners chosen by the public this year.
