The brave Knights from the Doric Reenactment were on hand to judge the wide range of costumes on show and treated the kids to an impromptu sword battle.

At noon the St. Combs Gala Day officially kicked off to the rousing beat of the Dezibel Drummers who headed the procession into the play park.

A number of superheroes and Tyrant the T-Rex were on hand all afternoon for photo opportunities with their fans.

Local dancers from the Burnett School of Dance and K-Dance gave a great display of traditional and contemporary dances, while in the hall the Critter Keeper showed his amazing collection of animals.

Guinness World Record holder strongman Jon Pritikin from California rolled up frying pans, bended iron bars with his teeth, and shattered baseball bats in his hands.

Also keeping the crowds entertained were the knights, foot soldiers and peasants from Doric Reenactment.

The Vehicle Show was full to bursting with a huge variety of vintage cars, motor cycles and trucks and speciality more modern vehicles.

The day finished with the Gala Dance and Dark Horse helped the crowd dance away any remaining energy.
