The streets were packed and full of laughter for the annual Chapel-en-le-Frith carnival.
The community really got behind the theme of this year’s event, celebrating anniversaries and there were floats and houses decorated to honour 70 years of the NHS and 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Committee member Alison Young said: “It was great to see so many people come and watch the parade and be part of the celebrations.”
The procession featured live music from four bands as well as six fancy dress floats and carnival royalty from all over the area.
Alison said: “The weather held off until after the crowning of the new queen which was really good.
“For the first time this year there was no float from Chapel High School and we only had one person go forward to be the queen with no retinue.
“Maybe for next year we need to do more to engage with the local groups and schools and get more people involved and keep the wonderful carnival traditions alive as it would be such a shame if one year we just didn’t have a queen.”
