MID and East Antrim's flower power was on recently at the Borough's third annual show and summer fair.
The Market Yard, Larne was transformed into a carnival of colour and drew visitors from right across the Borough and further afield.
Attendees enjoyed activities including cooking demonstrations, flower arranging and bird box building at the fair.
The main event, the Flower Show awards ceremony, was presented by U105's Carolyn Stewart and the Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, councilor Paul Reid.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, councillor Reid, said: "Our Mid and East Antrim In Bloom campaign has continued this year and the Flower Show is a big component of this.
“Through Mid and East Antrim In Bloom we encourage everyone who lives in the Borough to think about their local environment and how flowers, plants and gardens can enhance it for people and wildlife.
“Our Flower Show is the chance for local gardeners, bakers and floral artists to create a marvellous extravaganza of flowers, fruit and vegetables, and home-baked delights.
“I would especially like to thank our panel of judges, who have a wide range of experience and expertise amongst them and who thoroughly deliberated all the entrants today.
