Rhynie Gala has now been part of the yearly calendar for over 30 years which is a great achievement for a small community and is still going strong! This is obviously as a result of a great committee and the many loyal helpers and supporters who turn up from far and wide. RCT is represented on the organising committee.
The Gala hosts a wealth of entertainment over the weekend which always starts on the Thursday Night with a Fashion Show, Cookery Event or the like. Friday sees the 5-a-side Football, BBQ, Tug-of-War and the Marquee Disco. The main Gala on Saturday, which is a free event, includes the Tap O Noth Hill Race and in 2013 we held one of the short races in the Scottish Hill Runners Championship which saw 150+ runners. You will also see a local Pipe Band, Highland Dancing, Baking, Flower and Vegetable Competitions and usual stalls. There are many displays and over the years we have had Belly Dancing, Wrestling, Skip to the Beat, Decibel Drummers, Fire Brigade, Sweet Adelines, Drakes of Hazzard and many more. The Gala ends with a Marquee Dance and live music.
