Pictured: The Trades Procession at the Preston Guild 2012
It may seem like a distant memory now, but the trade procession, which included 99 floats, was the first of four parades through the city for the Guild.
It was followed by the Churches Procession on 3 September, the Community Procession on 7 September and the Torchlight procession on 8 September.
We hope to post many of your pictures here so keep adding to the Preston Group on Flickr
For now here are some more pictures from the day:
