People from around Huntingdonshire flocked to the River Great Ouse to enjoy a weekend full of bank holiday fun at the IWA Festival of Water.
The festival, held in St Neots, featured three days full of entertainment including canoe and paddleboard taster sessions, boat trips and a dog show.
The aim of the event is to showcase the River Great Ouse and to illustrate how the waterways can enhance towns and villages.
There was also a display of classic cars, live music, digger driving, water zorbing and fairground rides.
With music from the RAF marching band, the Ouse Valley Jazz Band, and The Panic Steel Band, entertainment was provided throughout the day and went on until the evening.
