Chairman Liz Scobie said the event had been another big success, adding: "Scotland's Mardi Gras is always a West End Festival highlight for so many people, as proved again in this our 19th year. Everyone loves a party and today's parade has showcased so much creativity, colour and wonderful rhythms.

"It's been a fabulous opportunity to kick-start what is going to be such a special summer for Glasgow and Scotland."
