Crowds flocked to join in the fun for the start of Sidbury Fair Week.
The annual event kicked off on Saturday, September 13, with a horticultural show.
A draw and auction of produce from the show raised more than £1,000 for Devon Air Ambulance and the Sid Valley Memory Café.
Rachel Cross went home with the Chairman’s Shield, with Ayrton Rose taking the Rod Tucker Cup for the under-16s best in show.
On Sunday, the fun run and walk saw a top turnout as residents, young and old, hot-footed it around the scenic route, before returning to tuck into a well-deserved hog roast.
