Local lass Gemma Caygill was given the time of her life by volunteering to take part in the Imps’ display and was proudly hoisted atop their pyramid in front of the crowds.

Lone piper Billy McGoldrick led the haunting solo from Castle McLellan before a firework display lit up the skies above the region’s Artists’ Town.
