Bagpipes could be heard for miles.
On Saturday 10 pipe bands from across the province and one from Washington State gathered in Nelson for the 41st annual Spring Fling. It is the third time in 20 years that the event has been hosted in Nelson.
The bands marched along Baker Street before assembling in Hall Street Plaza.
The Kootenay Kiltie Pipe band led the parade as the pipe bands consecutively marched along Baker Street.
The Nelson Sea Cadets closed the parade.
The Spring Fling was first held in Revelstoke in 1978.
