A riot of colour, music and fun hit the streets of March when the town played host to the ninth St George’s Fayre.
The traditional parade kicked off a day of stalls, circus skills entertainment, fun fair rides, food and music which was enjoyed by hundreds of people who turned out to enjoy the celebration.
Alongside on the river bank were boats bedecked in flags to celebrate the annual festival.
Mayor councillor Rob Skoulding said: “It was the best turn out yet. It gets better and better every year.
“I would like to thank everyone who joined the parade and special thanks to all the volunteers who give up their day so everybody else in the community had a fun time and a thank you to Gary Tustin who was MC for the day.
