DART lifeboat crew organised a Party in the Park to thank the community for their support of the RNLI lifeboat.
The event in Coronation Park, Dartmouth, featured games, live music, a barbecue and a bar, and was attended by more than 200 people.
Monty Halls gave a light-hearted talk on 'scary sharks' in the lifeboat station's crew room which was packed with children and adults fascinated to hear about his underwater adventures.
Dartmouth Rugby Club organised a kicking competition and the gig club showed people around their newest gig, Smudger.
Dartmouth fire brigade, the coastguard and RNLI flood rescue teams also attended the community event.
The music programme included Antonia Suner, Nick the Fish, Mitch and Mace and Sound Machine whose line-up included lifeboat crew members Squiff Howitt and Yorkie Lomas, who came up with the idea for the event.
Yorkie said: "The day was extremely well supported by the town and more than achieved our objective to give something back.
"We wanted to say thank you to everyone in Dartmouth, and at the same time help to promote local sports clubs. We hope that everyone agrees that we more than delivered."
The crew are planning to repeat the event next year. They extended their thanks to everyone who contributed to making Party in the Park such a success.
Noss Marina gave £200 to sponsor the children's games in the afternoon, and a number of firms gave prizes for the raffle which raised over £300.
These included: Dartmouth Canvas Factory, Dartmouth Chandlery, Dartmouth Golf and Country Club, Dartmouth Hire Centre, Dartmouth Wine Company, Gifts for Gentlemen, Holliss Filling Stations Ltd, No 11 Clothing, Number Five Higher Street, Paul Barclay Designs, Riverside Fashions, Sea Haven, Simon Drew, The Compass Office Shop, The Dartmouth Arms, The Dolphin, The Floating Bridge and W G Pillar Newsagent.
All profits from the event went into a fund for local sports clubs.
