Thousands of people had fun in the sun on the first day of Devizes Carnival street fair as they made the most of the weather before the threatened heavy rain forecast for Bank Holiday Monday.
The Green, Devizes was full of people of all ages enjoying the free festival which included a vast array of music and entertainment.
Stealing the show was the Iron Man presented by the Graeae Theatre Company in the car park of the Wyvern Club.
The towering 16ft high iron man made up of spare metal parts brought gasps from younger members of the audience but was finally widely applauded as he proved himself a force for good.
Elsewhere there were clowns and actors making sure the crowd had fun. Students from Circomedia dressed as Doo-Lolly and equipped with their own portable zebra crossing made sure people crossed their make shift road in safety.
A variety of bands made sure that those who just wanted to relax with a drink in their hand were kept entertained. Music came from folk rock group K-Passa, reggae band Giant Sequoia, The Pete Gage Band and Tongues of Fire.
