``It rained all over our parade,' said Peter Mooney, the organiser of the weekend's Deco Decanted and Jazz Festival.
But while that phrase would usually hint at low spirits and spoilt plans, the photographs from the weekend show the raining on the parade was only literal.
Heavy showers on Saturday saw the heavy coats and furs come out but otherwise didn't affect the morale of those who donned Deco gear for the mid-winter party weekend.
``It was another step forward for this different type of event,' Mr Mooney said.
``It's really quite different from February's Art Deco Weekend.
``It's much more intimate and everybody seemed to be having a great time.'
