Thursday – Lanimer Day
The main day of the celebrations packed with activity and is also the longest of the week. The official day starts with the uplifting of the Lord Cornet from his house by members of the Lord Cornets’ Club led by Strathclyde Police Mounted Branch. This cavalcade then proceeds to the Memorial Hall where the Lord Cornet and his entourage greet the many visiting Principals and other guests. This is followed by the “Safe Oot, Safe In” toast given by the Provost of South Lanarkshire. The Lord Cornet and his party then form a procession and proceed to Hope Street and Bloomgate where they are met by massed bands and make their way via the Cross to St. Leonard Street where the rest of the participants in the Morning Procession have assembled.
