Life under the sea was brought to the surface as crowds turned out in force for Sidmouth’s popular Sea Fest.
Hundreds of families joined community groups and clubs for a celebration of all things in, on and from the ocean on Saturday (May 18).
Guests dived into a wide variety of activities on offer throughout the day from a beach clean with Sidmouth Plastic Warriors to live music and book signings around the town.
In the afternoon, school children took part in a parade through the town to show off their fish masks which they created with the festival's artistic director Coco Hodgkinson, moving to music by Street Heat samba band.
Visitors also watched an original production called A Fish out of Water, which was written to mark 100 years since the death of Stephen Reynolds.
You may also want to watch:
Performing on the day were the Sidmouth Coastal Community Choir, Sidmouth Primary School Choir, the Chantry Buoys, The Cormorants, The Tourists, Samantics and DJ Tata.
