Hundreds of plastic ducks raced down a river in aid of a scouts group on Boxing Day.
The annual tradition was celebrated at the River Banwell, where crowds of people gathered to watch their entry compete in the race.
Families could also enjoy a drink at The Brewers Arms before the event, which kicked off in the afternoon.
The event was held by 1st Banwell Scout Group.
Children aged sixto eight-years-old can join the Beavers devision of the group, and those aged from 10-and-a-half through to 14 make up the Banwell Scouts.
