It was a day of street entertainment with the Cornhill the perfect venue, providing plenty of space for the performers and the spectators.
One of the many performances that took place during the day was a Scottish pipe marching band that filled the town with the sound of bagpipes as they made their way up Tavern Street.
There was also a juggler who liked to play with fire as he set alight his batons and impressed the onlooking crowds with his skills, plus comedy, music and much more.
