Almost 15,000 people enjoyed this year’s fun-filled Springfest at Balloch’s Loch Lomond Shores.

Thousands of people from across Scotland came to see the centre’s first festival of 2023 on the first weekend of April and sample the variety of stalls on offer.

Attendees visited shop stalls, street food, buskers, rides and other entertainment – with many vendors selling out due to the event’s popularity.

The public also had the chance to take part in cooking demos, whisky and gin tastings, pizza and sushi making classes.

Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores said: “Springfest was a fabulous weekend.

“It was great to see the crowds visit Loch Lomond Shores for our first festival of the year, and even better to have two almost dry days so nobody got soaked!”

“Like all our festivals, Springfest is free so is a great opportunity to have a fun day out – especially for foodies and families – so it was lovely to be able to welcome nearly 15,000 people over the weekend who did just that!”

Springfest was sponsored by Loch Lomond Whiskies who provided the whiskey and gin tastings.

Loch Lomond Shores are currently gearing up for their next festival: a three-day continental market planned for April 21 to 23.

The festival is set to be filled with street foods, meals, sweets, and products from around the world and not commonly found in UK supermarkets.
