There was something for all ages including a procession, a tug of war contest, wheelbarrow races, three-legged races and a community zumba class.

People lined the streets to see the Caribbean themed procession down Lindfield high street.

With music from the Euphoria Steel Band and floats it made for a colourful spectacle for a late spring day.

Pirate costumes were a favourite with old and young donning hats scarves, eye patches as well as Pirates of the Caribbean Jack Sparrow look-a-likes.

There were more than 120 stalls on the common.

Besides the fun and games there was a beer tent, food to suit all tastes and a pet show.

Prizes were given for the best float and various awards in the pat show including best junior handler.
