Hundreds of Blue Tooners and visitors alike headed to Peterhead town centre on the final Saturday of Scottish Week to see the annual parade wind its way through the streets.

The weather was again favourable for the Saturday finale as a host of brightly decorated floats, vintage cars and trucks, stilt walkers and children in fancy dress took to the town streets.

The popular parade didn’t fail to impress this year with a host of organisations taking part in the lively cavalcade.

Earlier in the day, locals headed to the Old Parish Church where they enjoyed a cup of tea and coffee while listening to the church choir perform.

A family history and heritage fair in Apex Church hall on Longate also attracted a steady crowed throughout the day, while at the Salvation Army hall, those attending enjoyed a buttery and a cuppa.

Peterhead Sheriff Court staged its now annual mock trial, this year entitled ‘There’s Something Stirring in the Woods’ as Goldilocks got into trouble yet again.

The children’s fancy dress competition was judged at the Congregational Church on Queen Street, and proved an incredibly difficult task for the judges.

The young entrants then took part in the parade to show off their superb outfits.

In St. Andrew’s Church, there was a delicious strawberry tea during the afternoon, while int he evening the Waterside Inn was packed with Abba fans who danced the night away to tribute band Abba-A-Rival.
