Hundreds descended on Peterhead’s historic Broad Street to enjoy Saturday’s Festive Festival.
An array of stalls selling a variety of Christmas gifts did a roaring trade throughout the day.
From hand-made jewellery, cards and ornaments, to fresh produce, cakes and sweets, there was something for everyone at the day-long event.
In addition to entertainment courtesy of Buchan Community Radio, there were also a couple of talented young pipers on hand with stirring tunes, and local singer Kerry Short belted out hit after hit.
For the youngters there was a free bouncy castle courtesy of Fishers Castles and a free climbing wall from Aberdeenshire Council which were packed throughout the day.
Organiser Alex Geddes, Here For You Partnership’s social regeneration officer, told the Buchanie: “I am delighted with the positive response from the visitors to the event.
“There seems a clear message from many that they have not seen the town so busy in a long time and the event has again brought the community together.
“Many have reported a real ‘buzz’ in the town, so for that alone I am pleased with the outcome of the festival.
“2014 looks set to see some new events coming to Peterhead and I sincerely hope the community once again gets behind them and most importantly enjoys the atmosphere.”
The Peterhead Mission also enjoyed a fantastic spin-off trade from the festival as it opened its doors throughout the day.
