The sun blazed down as large crowds turned out to enjoy Saturday’s bumper Buxton Carnival celebrations.

Revellers were treated to one of the biggest and best carnival parade’s for years, featuring the usual mix of fun and frivolity, colourful decorated floats, carriages, marching bands and foot characters. Full carnival report to follow.

This year’s Buxton Well Dressing Festival concludes today (Sunday) with the traditional church service at St Anne’s Church, on Bath Road, at 6pm, which will be attended by festival queen Phoebe Mitchell and rosebud Jessie May Owen.

Sunday is also the final day of the funfair on the Market Place, which will be open until 9pm.

There’s also still time to see the well dressings which are on show around the town and will be displayed until Monday.
