LITERALLY thousands of people took to the streets to bask in warm summer weather and watch the Carluke Gala Day 2014 pageant entries and bands set off.
The subsequent procession through a town heaving with spectators was a hit with young and old alike as it made its way towards Market Square for the crowning of Queen Claire-Jayne Rae.
And freelance photographer Roberto Cavieres was on hand to capture all the procession action for the Gazette, featured here in our slideshow created for your viewing pleasure by Gazette editor Julie Currie.
This week’s Gazette is also filled with news and pictures from the big day. And don’t miss the crowning ceremony slideshow which is also posted on our website.
