More than a 1,000 people visited the 1960s-themed event which featured a climbing wall, crazy golf, inflatables, model railway, Brampton Model Club, petting zoo, bungee trampolining and facepainting.
Magician Colin James entertained the children while the crowds enjoyed music from Flashback Photograph, zumba, and performances from Wendy Burke School of Dance and country dancers.

She was joined by senior princess Millie, 12, junior Queen Jessica, 10, junior princess Mia, eight, and five-year-old Rosebud as Princess Morgan.
Other groups in the parade included Buttons and Bows Pre-school, Sawtry Infants, Sawtry Pre-school and playgroup, Twist and Twirl Majorettes, the 51 (Orton) Squadron Air Training Corps band, Sawtry Wine Makers, Sawtry Day Nursery and Royal British Legion.
