Maidonians flocked to the Camden-inspired night market to enjoy hot food and live entertainment.
People came out in droves to have a taste of the street food, beer, wine or be drawn by a caricature artist.
Men on stilts walked amid the crowds as children jumped at their feet, while live bands played hits by musicians like Kings of Leon and The Jam to get the people dancing.
Maidenhead’s town crier welcomed the increasing number of people as they gathered around the stage.
Organiser Jeff Lloyd was pleased with the outcome of the market, despite his concern that the initial burst of rain might drive people away.
Speaking to the Advertiser at the event, he said: “It’s wonderful to see it all come together and for people to really put their best foot forward to help Maidenhead out.
“The town would love to have this at Christmas time and I think it could work a couple of times a year.”
Jeff was the driving force behind the alfresco-style night market after he won the Bright Ideas competition.
The night market will be held in Windsor on Saturday, July 19.
