  • Mayfield and Easthouses Gala Day

    McSence sponsors this event every year on the first Saturday in June when crowds line the streets and watch the many acts on the main stage in the local park. Children voted as “Best Boy and Girl” from each primary school lead the parade in decorated cars and are  awarded gifts on the main stage.

    Entertainment and competitions, such as football tournaments, gymnastics competitions, pony riding, and quad biking are held throughout the day. Many community groups set up stalls to raise funds. Gala day is a real community event, with entertainment throughout the day and the celebrations continue into the night in the clubs and lounges.
