Crowds flock to Brechin cartie race

It may have been a rainy day but that didn’t stop hundreds of people going to Brechin to watch this year’s Halloween in the city Cartie Race.

You may have been forgiven if you thought you may see boats sail past you instead of carties but the rain did not stop play today as Brechin entertained crowds with its second ever cartie race.

This year the race was bigger and better than ever, with an extended race track - taking racers from the High Street to River Street - and the added side-car category.

As well as the cartie race this year’s event saw the inclusion of the Angus Farmers’ Market on Church Street and live entertainment and carnival at the Brechin Leisure Centre.
