The parade and fair has been brightening up the area for the past 50 years and continues to grow in size and popularity.
This year was the first time the Somali community participated - and their float won first prize.
“This was amazing we were not expecting any prize at all,” said Madina Jeilani, counsellor at EACAS (East African Counselling And Support), based in North Hyde Road, Hayes.
Parents and children gathered along the route, which runs from Pump Lane, along Botwell Lane, and the parade finished up in Barra Hall Park in Freemasons Lane, Hayes, where there were food and drink stalls, charity attractions and games.
Families watched the striking costumes dance past and a team of musicians providing the beat at Saturday’s event, which began at 12.30pm and lasted four hours.
