Eaglesham Fair 2009
The Fair Queen and Usher lead the procession to the common green for the crowning of the Queen and opening of the 2009 Eaglesham Fair. The carriage is drawn by a magnificent pair of Clydesdale horses driven by Jimmy Steel of Jackton. Alexander, the eighth Earl of Eglinton, obtained for the inhabitants a charter for a weekly market and an annual fair in 1672. The fair was held on the last Thursday in August when horse-races took place. Nowadays the fair is held bi-annually in June.
