Strathaven Gala Day 2012 has been hailed as one of the best ever, after a spectacular, colourful parade through the town before Kirsten Waddell was crowned 2012 Gala Queen.
Huge crowds turned out to watch the procession, which was the biggest for many years, with hundreds of participants, as Smurfs, Chinese dragons, Olympic athletes - and many more, took to the streets.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the parade, and all the events of Gala Day (and in fact throughout Gala Week).
And here's the crowning of Kirsten Waddell as 2012 Gala Queen:
We'll have more photos - and video - here on s1strathaven over the next few days - but in the meantime you can share your own photos of a great Strathaven Gala Day here on s1strathaven!
