Around 3,000 people jubilantly welcomed the Queen to Accrington town centre.
Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the borough for the first time in 44 years on Wednesday where they were greeted by a crowd which had lined the streets around the historic Market Hall and Accrington Town Hall.
Their first stop was the market where the Queen unveiled a new coat of arms before meeting traders.
As they left the market the Queen and Prince Philip completed a walk about where they greeted onlookers, many of whom had been waiting several hours to see them.
Inside the town hall Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh met all of the mayors of Lancashire and Cumbria before watching a county parade featuring more than 500 people from various voluntary and community organisations including Hyndburn District Scouts, and Girl Guides.
Hyndburn council leader Miles Parkinson said the entire day was "absolutely wonderful" for all of the borough.
He said: "It's an incredible honour to welcome the Queen to Hyndburn as part of her Diamond Jubilee year. Everything went very well and the weather even cooperated which was especially important for the people who came to the town centre to see her."
