Hyndburn’s scouts and guides - cheered on by hundreds of visitors - paraded the streets of Accrington to celebrate their patron saint St George.
St Paul’s Barnfield Scout Group hosted the annual event, which saw more than 200 members from Scouting and Guiding in Hyndburn depart from St Paul’s Church.
The Accrington pipe band and local councillors and dignitaries also formed part of the parade.
They marched to the Market Hall, where Councillor Munsif Dad, Hyndburn’s Mayor, and Tony Cousins, Hyndburn’s Scouts District Commissioner, took the salute.
The scouts and guides renewed their promises during a service held in Accrington Town Hall, where a group performed a sketch about St George’s life using a puppet as a dragon.
Sarah Barton, who coordinated the event, said: “The people liked it because they used a puppet and it was very modern, it was very good.
“It’s bringing the traditional legend to modern day times, so the children can understand it.”
Sarah, who used to be a beaver leader, was very content with the parade.
She said: “It was a fabulous day enjoyed by everyone. Children especially like taking part in the parade and parents obviously like to watch.
“There were hundreds of people who turned out to watch the parade. It was a lovely sunny day.”
She added that she would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the St George’s Day parade.
