Garstang Children's Festival (PICTURE GALLERY)

GARSTANG'S ever popular Children's Festival was a riot of colour in the sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday.

The fine weather brought out crowds of people to line the route of the procession, to watch the many and varied entries - on themes ranging from children's book characters to films and TV - as well as marching bands, clubs and societies and representatives from local organisations.
