LANCASHIRE ENCOUNTER: Preston's Red Dream Parade in pictures
A parade dazzled onlookers as it trooped through Preston.
Dressed in red, representing the red rose county, a 400 - strong crowd wound through the city centre marking the finale to arts festival, Lancashire Encounter.
With dozens of community groups taking part the parade was meant as an expression of Lancashire’s diversity.
This year’s Lancashire Encounter, which ran from Friday to Sunday, saw more than 35,000 visitors to the biennial event.
It took over The Harris Museum and art Gallery, Winckley Square Gardens and spilled out onto the streets of the city centre.
There were outdoor performances, live music gigs in the evening, installations and interactive games.
