Easter bonnets - complete with frills!
Altogether some 200 friends and supporters gathered at the cliff lift at 2pm. The procession, including a number of competitors in wheelchairs, walked the 200 yards along the upper promenade to the picnic area where they gathered for an ice-cream and the judging.
Local police officers judged the best entries from each care home, with all participants receiving an Easter egg.
Following the judging the procession then walked to the station portico area for a sing-song with the town's "singing policeman" PC Jon Hutchinson, Saltburn's community bobby.
The event is the care homes' contribution to the town's 150th anniversary celebrations to mark Saltburn's 150th anniversary.
The care homes taking part were Cloneen, Four Seasons, Greta Cottage, Hazelgrove, Laurieston, Pembroke and Seaview.
