CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow, a stilt walker and a Penny Farthing cyclist were among the top attractions when Live@Troon hosted its biggest ever parade in the Town centre on Sunday afternoon.

Rain cleared to pave the way for perfect sunshine as groups from across the community helped contribute to what was a hugely colourful spectacle.

The Troon Boys Brigade Pipe Band led the way down to the Walker Hall just after noon from Troon Primary School with a host of traditional tunes to celebrate what was a successful three-day festival.

The Troon Gala Queen and Princesses once again enjoyed starring roles in another huge community event, following on from their memorable crowning in June.

Infinity All Stars, Dance Stars and Karalyn Bell School of Dance lined up in the procession to the town centre and characters from Paw Patrol proved hugely popular with the younger children.

Troon Belly Dancers made an appearance and the popular musical group SumWummindrummin laid on a performance outside the Walker Hall on arrival.

Other community groups featuring included Friends of Fullarton and Dundonald Smugglers.

The Absurdist Pipe Band were also a top attraction, along with a Flag Pole Artist, Dundonald Castle Marchers and the Allotment Society Marchers.

A Herbie Car was another popular feature.

The parade had become an essential part of Live@Troon and helps showcase the community in the best possible way.

It will be fun to see what weird and wonderful costumes people come up with next year.
