Held in the balllroom at the town hall around 100 people danced the night away and many were dressed in 1940s garb to mark the start of Padiham on Parade which takes place this Saturday and Sunday.

Among the attractions are 1940s re-enactments, military vehicles on display, live music, an RAF fly past and on the Sunday there is a remembrance parade and service.
