Thousands of lights covered the floats at the Moonlight Parade.

This year's show has also been the warmest - with temperatures hitting the 30s.

Last night (12 August), the floats made their second outing for the Moonlight Parade.

The whole island has been celebrating the Battle of Flowers' return, including the West's Centre cow statues which have been brightly decorated.

It was another big year for the Optimists Club as it won the Prix d'Honneur award for the third time in a row.

The two-day celebrations culminated with a night-time spectacular, as floats lined the sea front adorned with lights.
