The fun-packed day kicked off with a huge market, with entertainment provided by Kingdom FM.

Thousands then flocked to South Street for the huge outdoor ceilidh, before a torch-lit parade led by the City of St Andrews Pipe Band and community stars voted by locals snaked through the town.

That culminated at the harbour, when visitors were able watch fireworks lighting up the town.

And for those who wanted to squeeze a little bit more from the day, the celebrations continued with live music at the St Andrews Sessions, with Zoe Graham, The 101 and Vanives performing at the Holy Trinity Church.

The event was organised by BID St Andrews.
