CASTLE Hill was in the pink for Huddersfield's annual gay festival.
The Pink Picnic drew crowds of about 4,000 to Castle Hill on Sunday, where the gay pride flag was flying at full mast from the Jubilee Tower.
As well as members of the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, visitors came from all over the UK thanks to the festival's growing reputation.
The event began 19 years ago and is organised by The Brunswick Centre, a Huddersfield HIV and sexual health charity.
Richard Blackburn, the Pink Picnic co-ordinator,
said this year's Pink Picnic had been a huge success.
"It has been absolutely fantastic, better than we expected considering the weather we've had all week.
"But the sun came out and everyone's had a good day.
"It's an event for everyone and we couldn't do it without the help and donations from the community.
"Kirklees Council have backed us 100% too and it's great they give us such strong support."
The festivities featured craft and market stalls, face painting and beauty therapies, fortune tellers and a bar provided by The Greyhound.
There were information stalls on sexual health and LGBT charities.
Other local groups, such as Samaritans and women's support service Womenspace, were also represented.
Live cabaret was on offer from the Pride Sisters.
The compere was drag queen Missdameana, helped by
by fellow drag queens Gina and Priscilla, who arrived in style in a pink Cadillac car.
Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford - who has supported LGBT issues in the past - arrived with them to deliver a speech at the event.
