The people of Galashiels came out in force on Wednesday evening to either dress up or watch others do so.
And, with the weather holding out (just), it was the usual mixture of madness, merriment and fun.
The Southern’s digital content manager Kevin Janiak set out armed with a video camera – and this is the result.
And when the fancy dress passed, Gala folk watched the procession of horses, led by the Braw Lad and Lass, as they returned to the town from their visit to Torwoodlee. Video from Stuart Cobley to come later.
