Hundreds of people cashed in perfect summer conditions to take part in Esplanade Day.
The large family-focused event yesterday had a mixture of live music, food stalls and plenty for the kids to do.
The day, held at Palmerston North's Victoria Esplanade, this year had a circus theme, and featured entertainers from Fuse Circus's Campground Chaos.
