SOME 1,400 revellers danced, walked and rode on floats around Barnsley for the annual mayor’s parade on Saturday.

Thousands more lined the streets in bright sunshine to watch the colourful spectacle which featured 55 organisations.

The theme of this year’s event was Barnsley's past, present and future, and featured Steampunks, historical figures, majorettes, characters from Star Wars and even zombies.

They were joined by musicians, a mobile aerial display, Father Christmas, dancers and many more wonderful and creative parade contributors who all added to the carnival atmosphere.

It was a hard choice for Mayor of Barnsley, Cllr Ken Richardson to pick the winners but after much deliberation they were as follows:

Outstanding contribution to the parade: Barnsley Hospital Charity

Best Walking Group: 33rd Salem Rainbows

Best float: Mencap
