Today is our town's annual festival to perpetuate feudalism and the rule of the nobility over us peasants! In other places in Scotland you have Gala Days but here it is way much more important than that, don't you know. There will be a procession, crowning of the Queen etc, much merriment, under age drinking and tonight drunken violence, the pubs have been open from six am and people are allowed to drink their carry-oots in the street.
Both boys are in a float or tableaux as it's called, I wonder if you can guess what the theme is?
