Party fever took hold in Old Windsor at the weekend with the annual Old Windsor Carnival.
Festivities kicked off on Friday with the event’s donkey derby and evening fireworks display.
Saturday saw the traditional floats assemble in Tyle Place, before processing through the village led by the Windsor town crier and the Shires British Legion Youth Band.
Making their way to the recreation ground in Robin Willis Way, Old Windsor Parish Church was presented with an award for their VE Day-themed entry.
The day continued with performances by the Stannage Stunt Display Team, with the carnival concluding on Sunday with sports tournaments, a talent show and the judging of the cake decorating competition.
Speaking about the event, carnival chairman Jonathan Stacey said: “It went really, really well and it went on a lot longer than it normally does.
"I think we had a bigger turnout than we normally do as well.
“I think the floats seemed to be of a much higher this year too and what I think worked really well this year was having the staging for the presentation of the trophies – so I think we’ll definitely be doing that again next year.”
