  1. Hello, I would like to know what route there is to exit the town? Just recently moved here and got stuck in Bo’ness last year due to this fiasco, last year I asked two police officers and even they didn’t know how to leave?? Appalling.
    I am required to leave the town on this day and don’t know what route to take, we stay within Philpingstone road area. Any help would be appreciated as I may have to drive through the parade if there is no exit?

    1. Exit from Philpingstone Road area is easy access to the east Edinburgh etc as the Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival is held around the centre of the town to Grangepans up Cowdenhill to the Grange School to the top of Harbour Road then west along Grahamsdyke Road to the Douglas Park.
      The Procession starts at 12 noon heading through the town to Grangepans so you would have to be through the town before 11am using the town bypass to avoid the town centre for the road closing or via Grahamsdyke Road or wait until the Procession heads up Cowdenhill where you can view it. The road will be opened up by the police. There will be no other access during the stated time.
      Maybe read the website and the history before calling it a fiasco as “THE BO’NESS CHILDREN’S FAIR FESTIVAL” is regarded as one the largest and spectacular children’s fair festivals in the UK. The town stops on the day of Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival which many families and builders have been working on decorated homes and vehicles for the procession and the “Viewing of the Arches” the Thursday night known as “The Fair E’en” and you may find a street or road closed if the visiting public and friends of Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival are large enough to close for a couple of hours from 5pm onwards. Hope you leave before 11am if your heading west or go via Linlithgow should you wish to.
