A sea of yellow plastic ducks sailed majestically up the Thames as part of the Royal Windsor Midsummer Fair and Duck Race.
The Rotary Club of Windsor and Eton event, which took place at Alexandra Gardens on Saturday was attended by special guest and panto star Kevin Cruise.
First prize in the duck race was won by Rebecca Cutter, 35, of Eton Wick, who received £500 after her sixth time of taking part over the years.
Rotary Club member David Shaw said: "Despite the poor weather we did get a break in the weather when the Duck race started, and with the added benefit of Kevin Cruise as co-host, we did see another great race."
The event was organised in association with the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and King Edward Court.
There were also bands, Morris dancing, tea, cakes and sandwiches provided by Clewer scouts and guides, a beer tent, coconut shy, cork shooting gallery, children's roundabout and bouncy castle.
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.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
