Thousands turned out to line the streets, as over 80 floats took part in three-mile procession around the town.

Local charities, clubs, organisations and local businesses got involved in what is one of the largest non-funded processions in the UK.

Here we have a selection of photos taken by us on the day – to see more pick up a copy of the Saffron Walden Reporter this Thursday.
