After the awful weather and cancellation of the bike race, which now takes place on Sunday at 5.30, the Pram Race lifted everybody’s spirits and filled the Old Town with colour.

On a very windy seafront, the teams set off from The Cutter Pub just after 7pm and made their way along packed streets in the Old Town, collecting money along the way. As usual, there were some fantastic costumes and very colourful prams, and it's all in aid of local charities.
