Ugly ducklings took the first prize at this year's Old Windsor Carnival which saw floats take on a fairy-tale theme.
Third Old Windsor Brownies were victorious at the event on Saturday after donning duck costumes and designed their float in tribute to the Hans Christian Anderson tale.
The Royal School, in The Great Park, took second prize with their float designed with the theme of Little Red Riding Hood and the Old Windsor Rainbows came third with The Princess and the Pea.
Brown Owl Michelle Ranking said: "It's been a long time coming but it's fantastic because the girls and their parents worked so hard for it.
"They've had an absolute ball, they were so excited and were singing the Ugly Duckling song all way around."
A procession of floats made its way from Tyle Place at 2pm and arrived at Old Windsor Recreation Ground, in Robin Willis Way, at 2.45pm.
There were a range of stalls at the event, performances by the Cumberland Giants, competitions and raffles.
The Deputy Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr James Evans, said: "I loved the enthusiasm of the participants and the decoration of the floats were outstanding.
“Events like this are the glue which cements the community together."
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
