It was party time in Brandon as an annual carnival returned bigger than ever in glorious sunshine.
Hundreds of people packed out the town's Market Hill and High Street for Brandon Carnival on a day of family fun on Sunday.
There were stalls, an unveiling of a new flag for the town, and a centrepiece parade which saw community groups and schools from around the area put on a colourful display.
Gary Brocklehurst, organiser, said the day could not have been better.
'I said last year that we had built on our previous success and somehow we have done it again.
